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
ASUS-P5ND MB
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 
connections

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.

Frank F
