        I don't consider myself anything close to a computer expert, but that seems like a killer build, and should be able to handle pretty much anything you throw at it. I like it.!

          Maybe look at a different FCS, the G940 has some horrible reviews

            The biggest thing for me with the Logitech was the force feedback, and the reviews are pretty mixed, it's a risk but for force feed back and a complete system that i know works in the two games i want to play(DCS and ArmA2, should work for ArmA3) it's one I am willing to take unless you know of a better stick/system with force feedback

            edit: after looking at some forum posts about the bugs people are experiencing and not getting any support from Logitech I have concluded it is indeed a bad system, I am surprised that the professional reviews didn't mention any of these issues.

                yeah I was thinking of getting another SSD or two for RAID, as for RAM I am just not sure if more than 8 gigs would be used. About the only time I get close to using the total of the 4 gigs I have now is when I am rendering something in 3D(blender) that has 50+ of large texture files

                  I have read different sources and am led to believe that unless you are doing the ram disk thing and intensive multi tasking, that 4gb does just fine and 8gb is way more than enough for most of us. Above that is mostly for "look at me and my fine computer", epeen bragging rights. Even if memory is pretty cheap right now, what good is it if your computer is not using it?

                    I'd jump to 16 gig of ram. More is better and it should only cost about $80 bucks. For 2 - 8 gig dimms

                      chief is right even if he types it like an adolesant 72 year old :)

                      you dont need more epeen ram .... unless you plan to some day run win8 or plan on running ts4 and arma3 and recording videos and editing them

                      If you dont plan on doing those things stick with 8 gig ram

                          Who knows ?

                          They change the way windows works with each version and each update.

                          but I do know I need 16g ram to do my video editing 32g would make the work much easier

                            Some people may find that extra 80 bucks hard to find or better spent on parts that will help them run their games better. At least I am still typing and gaming and just finished building my new gaming rig, not bad for a geezer.

                              luckily my wife is working again, i got a raise, car will soon be paid off, and i will(most likely) have a new better paying job by next year so it's less about the money and more about simply not needing it and beiong able to spend $80 somewhere else :)
