Thanks guys. My final system price seems to keep getting bigger.
I think right now I'm going to have to go with a graphics card that is around $200, which seems to be the Sapphire Radeon 4870 1GB, unless Nvidia has a comparable one. I can always get another Radeon 4870 and run it with Crossfire right?
Here are the games I will be playing...awesome stuff. I read on a forum that flight simulators rely much more on the CPU than a graphics card. I don't have time to play them very much anyways, so I don't mind turning down the settings.
LockOn - Modern Air Combat
For RAM, what is the difference in timings? I found this page of RAM...all look pretty good to me. G.Skill has a couple of kits that are around the same price, different timings...don't know which one is better.
