If you know what you are doing, it is amazing what you can do with FSX on a bit of older hardware. Please notice there is no mention of add-ons or additional traffic or anything like that. The CPU runs at 3.33 stock and if you were to get close to 4.00 then FSX could be run almost maxed out.
No, none of my suggestions have anything to do with being a moderator, so you can drop that idea, along with your cussing.

Take a look at my signature. My FSX runs great and I didn't notice that much improvement when I upgraded from a GTX260 to the 460. The E8600 can be OC'ed very nice with a good after market air cooler. I have been running mine for two years with no problem.

Good choices, should run FSX very well.

I believe "Jim" is refering to your propensity for un-attractive vocabulary. He is not the only one that has noticed...Don
