7200 is really good. If u have the money then get the 10,000. But if not then forget it. here is the 10,000 one. http://us-depot.com/wedira7410sa.html. Its a lot more money as you can see. Im not gonna say anything about the memory but if u wanna go and spend more money on a gig of memory which u wont really need then go for it... I dont get the cd rom/dvdrom choices.

Welcome back to the forum harley88.Click here for a 74BG 10,000RPM Western Digital hard drive. If thats out of your price range, a 7,200 RPM one will suit you just fine, the installs on those flight sims just wont be as speedy.

You need a DVD-ROM drive, not just CD ROM. So be sure you buy one thats says its DVD-ROM compliant.

Dont worry about bothering us, we're here to help!

Monster oo

thanks for reply.
what i mean on the cd stuff is that one has a 48x read speed and the other has a 52 x would it be better to just get the 52 x and drop the dvd or does it make any diff?

i want the 1 gb memory, will the ones i picked work with everything?

thanks much
harley

well, 48X vs a 52X is not really a big difference. You wont really notice it. But i mean go with the 48X with the DVD rom.

Sounds good, here's a summary:

Case: XS-Alien, Aluminum Windowed ATX Tower Case

Power Supply: 500 Watt (Bundled with case)

Processor: Intel Pentium 4, 3.4Ghz, 800MHz FSB, socket 478

Motherboard: Asus P4C800-E Deluxe

*Memory: 512-1024 MB PC 3200 400 MHz DDR RAM

*Hard Drive: 1) 74 Gb Western Digital 10,000RPM Raptor Drive (2x if you want RAID)

If you have some extra money, you might want to look into buying some cathode lights. Remember you still need a keyboard, mouse, and speakers.
