I think I will keep the SSD, MOBO (unless one that is better but about the same price pops up) ,and CPU. I am not partial to the RAM, Video Card, Case, Optical Drive or PSU.
I will not be using Windoze, But rather Ubuntu. I refuse to pay 100's of dollars more for an OS I don't need. I think I will be using Intel because they kill AMD's of the same price point in almost all of the benchmark tests I looked at.
Your help in the matter is greatly appreciated. Please do read the X-Plane requirements before thinking about what would be better. As I said this program is very peculiar about what it likes.
I havent had time to read all your links , but unless the game is very basic that graphics card is not suitable . Its definitely NOT going to play a 3D game with any detailed images , if it will run them at all .
The coolmax psu is also highly suspect .
Use only 80+ bronze or better rated psu's
