New Custom PC

Hello all,

I'm going to build a new PC to use for Flight Simulator X. Do you think it will run it well, any compatibility issue with any parts?

Here is a pic of the list

I just purchased Vista 32bit from Target so that will be my main OS.

Just hope you've installed Windows and all the drivers a few times before. Many get slammed over the driver thing.

it will run fine, but your part selection could be improved.

spend $10 more to double your hard drive size. this wd 500gb ($65) drive is faster also:

if you plan on using the logitech combo to control flight simulator x (instead of a joystick/gamepad), you may not be happy with the mouse tracking. the lx310 includes a laser mouse instead.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
