I used to be a big AMD user as well. For years, AMD CPUs would run circles around Intel's CPUs and at a fraction of the cost. With the advent of the Intel Core2 CPU, that dynamic changed and AMD has trailed ever since. Yes, you can build a computer with an AMD processor and it will run FSX, but Intel CPUs will do it just a little better. If you decide to build with an AMD processor, then you are best off using a Radeon graphics card as AMD owns Radeon and they design their processors and graphics cards to work together. If you build using an Intel processor, then you can use either graphics card, but Nvidia cards seem to run FSX slightly better.
Just my dos centavos, the advice is free so consider it to be worth what you paid for it. :wiggle:
