Gaming PC Build Suggestions - Flight Sims


Aug 3, 2011
Looking to build a gaming PC built towards flight sims with the occasional First-Person Shooter. I would like to play DCS: Black Shark or FSX with all the details on high and have it run smoothly. I realize that maybe tough on my budget for a game like Black Shark. So I'll fill out the customary form.....

Approximate Purchase Date:
No specified time frame. If piecing it together then over the next few months. If buying off a build a website then sooner rather than later like within the next few weeks.

Budget Range: $600 - $750 USD After Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important:
Strictly gaming, namely flight sims.

Parts Not Required:
Monitor (hooking up to HD tv), speakers, keyboard or mouse.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
No preference.

Country of Origin:

Parts Preferences:
No preference.

Maybe. Never done it before but know folks who have.

SLI or Crossfire:

Monitor Resolution:
via HDMI out from PC to 46" HD 1080p LCD tv.

Additional Comments: I do not care about aesthetics of the case or brand. I'm not even concerned with sound quality so an overpowering sound card isn't worth it to me right now. I'm just looking for the most bang for the buck.
