This system is designed to provide excellent performance for the dollar for X-Plane and/or MSFS X. If you are on a budget and want to know "what is the least expensive system I can get that will run X-Plane or MSFS X nicely?", then this is the system for you. It is designed specifically for customers wanting to run X-Plane on a single full-hd (1080P) monitor. A second monitor can be added for showing your map, GPS, Air Manager, etc. Or, bump up the video card and you can a run triple-screen setup
Mass storage is typically the bottleneck in just about every system. So, how do we reduce this bottleneck? We do this by using an SSD (Solid State Drive). Using an SSD over conventional mechanical storage is a night and day difference. If you ever use an SSD, you will never go back to mechanical storage.
