I am looking for advise on what a computer shop has proposed for a custom computer just for MS flight sim X. Can someone look at the info below and let me know if this would run nicely and if the price is right? I would be very thankful as I don't know much about computers. Thanks, Nick

If you want to make the power supply bigger it can't hurt, great brand!
What video card are you going to use, the more gigs the better for your FPS.
Sugest a Nividia 660-TI or 670 ( or above )
Also the SSD 120 might be a little too small once you add the OS, FSX & any add ons and what ever else you have.
Go with 2 ssd- 1 for the operating system & one for storage/games etc.
or add a big std harddrive.
