Default Build me a computer. under $900

I getting a new PC. I have about $900. I want it to play Flight Simulator X at a highest frame rate as possible, and for it to author DVDs. I don't want it to be noisy. I'm not worried about space since i already have some hdds. AMD or Intel - up to you.

Use that New egg site please

Thanks a lot.

Do you need a monitor / mouse / keyboard / speakers included in that price?

That's pretty much everything you need if you already have a hard drive. Not sure if you have an optical. I'm assuming you are not going to be overclocking at all and that you already have a copy of Windows. Good luck.

Guys, the GT is, and always was a G92...

the G92 GTS is identical to the GT, but with 128 shader processors instead of the 112 found in the GT, and they are clocked higher in general and overclock higher.

I've seen a GTS hit 830MHz. I don't think I've seen a GT go past 700MHz.
