I want to build a computer for flight simulators, namely :
Microsoft Flight Sims
I also want to use one of these:
TrackIR 5 :: TrackIR :: Premium head tracking for gaming
My question is will the above build be able to handle the flight sims with the trackir smoothly without any slowing down??
Would I be better off with one of these?? If so, could you recommend components (mb, gpu and ram) to go with it.

I definitely don't have unlimited funds, but I will be able to save up over a few months and as this will be my new hobby, I want to do it right.
Oh, one more question, is there any benefit of a SATA DVD burner vs. a IDE??
Thanks for the help. You guys really are DA BOMB!
