I'd use that drive for the Gen-X Frank, keeping it on a physically separate
drive (as opposed to a separate petition) is definitely an advantage.

Hi Fred

Don't want to make you jealous. But.

Intel Q9550
Coolmaster Hyper TX2 cooler
Nvidia 9800GTS overclocked
Coolmaster case black
Corsair XMS 8gig RAM
500gb fast drive, for FSX only should be more than enough. But will have a 
spare  200gb SATA available if needed.
700w supply
Creative extreme X-FI audio
Pinnacle dual tuner
Win Vista Premium 64

Just under a grand, from www.powerc.com, only 30 minutes drive from here.

The 24 inch widescreen from Pixmania. ACER P243W with VGA/DVI and HDMI 

TrackIR from www.rcsimulations.com

One more purchase to go, a wireless network printer to replace the aging 
Epson 915 (cartridges are getting difficult to source)

And that will be it for a couple of years or more.

My current machine will handle all the mundain tasks.
