I know this is a preference thing - but I would like to see you swap your cooler for either a Kuhler or a Hydro. You have a nice unlocked processor - why not put it under some water? I know these water coolers are "in line with" top air coolers, but double up the FANs on your radiator and get some nice high speed high airflow fans and you should be able to get a better overclock on that CPU....

Of course, maybe you are not planning on overclocking it? In that case WHY U ON OCN? Just a thought - its really a preference thing but it could also be a lower temp more stable overclock thing... and if you are dropping this much bank on a system you should get the best~ ^_^ Good luck with the build and let us all know what you decide~

So after more research, this is the optimal build for flight simulator:

Asus GTX 560 DC/2DI/1GD5 DirectCU 1GB GDDR5 256bit PCI-E HDCP 2x DVI, 1x HDMI
$349.00

Microsoft Wired Desktop 600 Black USB Keyboard & Optical Mouse
$25.00

CORSAIR Gaming Series GS600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
$149.00

Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB SATA II 7200RPM 32MB OEM
$89.00

DELL Ultrasharp U2311H 23" 1920 x 1080 8MS IPS Panel LCD Monitor
$449.00

Asus DRW-24B3ST Black 24x Dual Layer SATA DVD Rewriter BLACK RETAIL
$45.00

Antec Three Hundred Gaming ATX Case Black
$109.00

Intel SandyBridge Upgrade Bundle
-Intel Core i5 2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz 6MB Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Processor
-ASUS P8H61-M Pro (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 B3 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
-G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1866 CL8 Dual Channel Memory - Sandy Bridge Optimized
$599.00


Product Total:$1,814.00

I want to get a 2500k and OC it but I'm not confident to do it but its been proven Flight simulator performs very well when an i5 2500k is OCed over 4ghz.

If thats a non Ti 560 then stick with the 6850, its much better value and about the same performance.
