I'm sorry that this comes in instalments, but why do you want 32 GB of RAM? Will your OS be able to utilise that? FSX only uses up to 4 GB, and cannot use more than that due to its 32-bit architecture.


Usually, Asus motherboards also come with sound on board, so why a separate sound card?


But I will say that those specs are impressive!

Since W10 did it's major change, my fps almost doubled, example, before 40fps, now 70fps.

Glad I did not spend thousands of $$$, got about $1500.00 us. My rig, CyberPower, I bought it right off the counter as a demo desktop, Fry's gave 50.00 from being a demo, then upgraded GPU, and so on, love my rig.
