Good to 'meet' you and I was just looking for some help on the build I have outlined (still quite roughly) below. I built a PC about 5 years ago now but I feel like the knowledge I had back then has faded and I'm trying to get back into it.
This time I want to build a PC for under £1000 (I'm in the UK so will probably be ordering from a particular website scan.co.uk - don't know if I am allowed to mention them under your forum rules which I looked at but please moderate out if not).
I'm looking for it to run FSX (Flight Simulator X) at high graphics with various add-ons, in this respect I understand the game is very CPU intensive as opposed to GPU intensive, however I will also be running some other modern games but FSX is my focus. Therefore I would be looking to overclock the CPU sensibly to achieve this.
Please can you tell me if there is anything wrong with the below, and how you might improve or change the setup I have so far?Motherboard:

I am looking to get a SSD for system files and quick booting. There is also the option to salvage my 2TB HDD from my current pc but I need to check the specs etc. I may also be able to salvage the PSU from my current pc as well but don't have my current system specs to hand right now.
If anyone who would be willing to take a quick look at this and give me any advice then it would be much appreciated!
