I grade you at 75 out of 100 percent.

Wrong Answers were.

Sparkle Video card. Junk
Antec PSU. Junk
Seagate Barracuda.. Junk. (ever since Seagate bought Maxtor there product line is always in the Open Box Bin. They have a high rate of failure. Now. The Black Edition Western Digital is what I like but the Hitachi are great too.

If you could post a pic of the inside of your case that would be awesome. Because then we could see your cable management and such.
But otherwise that seems like a decent setup.. definitely will be able to run WoW and empire total war. Don't know about MS flight simulator.

I disagree. There are some good parts but the others are not that good. warrantees are not solid and Failure rates are high on the PSU< GPU< and the HDD. Three very important components.

I have a similar HDD by seagate for over 2 years with no problems, but it all depends on luck I guess.
But I do agree on the GPU, that is not a reliable company.
