Good news: I got FSX Deluxe for Christmas.
Bad news: Gotta rebuild the old Pentium 4 3GHz, 512 RAM, IDE drive system.
So can I piece this together for less than $500 to Newegg? I'd want a Core 2 MOBO, SATA drive, 2G RAM, and decent PCIe x16 graphics. (Bigger power supply?) How do I choose a decent MOBO out of that flock? What should I be looking for?
Or should I just scrap the whole system, bite the bullet and go into debt for $1500+ for a new desktop altogether. I hate buying a new box all built as I spent a lot of effort building this one with a really slick full size case, decent monitor, keyboard, mouse, DVD drive, etc. etc.
