Im going to upgrade to:

MB ASUS P8H67
CPU i5 2500k
video MSI NVIDIA 560ti
and a thermaltake 675W
I know its not the highest bid here but I dont need bragging rights i need to be able to play this sim reasonaly well.

So my old rig is going to be my work rig.
Its:

MB ASUS striker extreem
CPU Q6600 quad
video NVIDEA 8800GT
With a 500W
It did run IL2 trough all it updates and versions just fine on the highest settings.

Room for expansion/upgrades? Maybe he has a few hard drives in his system or 50 USP devices hooked up to a handful of hubs.

That's why I was asking.

Just did some research and realized modern high-end(~$150) PSUs top out 80% efficiency at only 5% load.

Seems like there are no valid arguments against an overkill PSU left.

Initial cost is the only downside AFAIK .

BTW ... Its surprising how many intermittent strange hard to track down faults suddenly disappear after a PSU upgrade

Buying twice will get you there without a doubt.
