Hello,

I am looking to purchase a new PC to run Microsoft FSX somewhat efficiently, plus Office and basic programs. A budget of $800 is the aim.

So far, research has led me to these specs,

intel Core i-7 2700?
Nvidia, which one?
Coolant fan?
Memory CPU & GPU?
Monitor desired is the following
ASUS VS239H-P 23-Inch Full-HD LED IPS Monitor

Dell, Alienware, Cyberpower?
If I go with a Cyberpower, easy to upgrade from
i-5 to an i-7? Also aware of FSX limitations between the two. I really appreciate all input.

Thanks, Scotty

You could do this better for $500 if you are willing to build it yourself. Prebuilts are very overpriced.

getting a custom PC doesnt really cost much more than the parts these days

I built a system on cyberpowerpc for $896 then put all the parts into pcpartpicker and the price was $886 and there was $45 in mail in rebates. So all the savings you get comes from mail in rebates.

well it depends, most of the time its cheaper to build urself, depends on what company u buy from and etc. they usually got a markup price versus buying and building urself.
