So I ordered a new Alienware Area-51, will be here sometime next week or so.
The specs
Cosmic Black, Alienware Area-51 Chassis
Intel® Core™ i7 990x Extreme Six Core Processor (3.46GHz, 12MB Cache)
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit
12GB DDR3 1333MHz (3x 4GB) Tri Channel Memory
Dual 1GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 460
1TB - SATA-II, 3Gb/s, 7,200RPM, 32MB Cache HDD

How would you guys think this system will run Fsx, which all my addons?
I think it'll be pretty damn sweet.

I also have out for delivery a ASUS Full HD 24 inch monitor, and TrackIR 5.

What about your power supply?

Anything under 800w will bottleneck the system.

All I need now is to water-cool the system... its nearly perfect!!

I think you should ship it to me for testing purposes. I'll give it a really good and thorough testing AND I'll break it in for six weeks for FREE!

What a deal, huh?

😉

I just did a tally....

$4509.76. 😳

I did not include the Network storage drive, the 1 TB laptop drive or the other 1TB External HDD.....

... and I still need a watercooling system!

Still need a water cooling system? Mine came with one already installed.

Built a system on Newegg with Windows 7 Pro and a more powerful PSU for $2424.92. That's before shipping. Plenty of room to play with SSDs, more powerful GPUs, watercooling, etc.

I can use the Thermaltake Big Water 760is that I already have, but I am looking for a much solid performer. So I am looking at the EK watercooling systems. I am looking to cover the entire system, minus the RAM. So that would be the CPU, Northbridge, Southbridge, and all three video cards. 😎
