    Getting warmer now


    That looks like a decent off the shelf system for FSX. The only part I would question is that it looks like it only uses one stick of RAM, where two matched sticks of RAM would allow you to run in dual channel mode (a bit faster).

    Assuming you're in Canada based on the listed price, which part of the country are you in? If out west you may want to have a look at MemoryExpress as well. They have some pre-built systems and can also custom build too.

    I'm aware of MemoryExpress I just saw this system at the Dell site on sale

    Welcome to the forum(s). That system should be fine for FSX. Just go to two RAM sticks as Loki suggests and you'll be good-to-go. - Doug
