If you are running XP 2 gigs memory is fine, if you are running Vista get 4 gigs.
Your power supply better be at least a name brand 700w or better for those cards and ram.
Besides that it's a good looking setup, get the biggest monitor you can afford, you'll enjoy that.

HI the gforce 8500 is ok but a gforce 8800 with 640mb or higher would be
better. If you intend to run the 2 cards together in SLI they need to be the same.
The geforce 7300 is a little under powered to run graphics med to high settings

agreed with the above comments.

- more memory ( easy to add some at a later stage )
- more powerful gfx cards ( again can add later )

Enjoy it when u get it 😎

i Have a a AMD 64-bit 3200+ 2.01GHz rated at 3.2GHz
Windows XP service pack 3
2GB ram
8600GT OC 512MB
320Gb 3GB/sec (the one FSX is installed on) and 120GB HDD

and I can run all the setting on high with about 16fps with traffic at 15% and airport traffic at medium

hope this helps, if my PC can do this urs will handle it but yeah get a PC with an 8800 640MB or 748MB much better 😀
