as for the ram, and the HDD, yeah, i agree, but then beggars can't be choosers, can they? anyways, someone can probably do better than me...
Actually, that is a pretty good setup that you have put together. Not sure if the OP's original choice in a 400w PSU would be enough to power everything or if it does, then it would be cutting it close. Your build also double's the RAM and triples the HDD storage space.

I vote for -iceblade^'s build.

And 3, the Bulldozer will be coming out later this year so don't waste money by buying a chip that you'll just want to upgrade later on.
Honestly, $25 dollars more for a hex core is way worth it to me. In the near future games will utilize hex cores. This brings back old bad memories, when I bought the Core 2 duo E8500 instead of the Q6600. Many games starting coming with multi-core rendering. I'm not making the same mistake twice.

Yeah, Thats what I heard. I think you stand correct.

I am a FS X "gamer" and the simulatiom has a reputation of being able to "swallo up" every bit of hardware you can throw at it. I play it on my sig rig and the graphics are very 80's looking,definitly not a visualy stimulating game. The carrier landings are something to master, but just so "retro" looking.

Thats a decent build if i didnt have to pay taxes. I bought the antec 300 at microcenter for $50. Tigerdirect for the 5770 so I can get bing cash back. So i'm happy.

Well, have you got a Frys around you? They've got the 1055T + TA890FXE combo as well, albeit a bit more expensive than Newegg (still cheaper than buying the components separately). In-store pickup only.
