I would appreciate your comments for my flight sim build.

BUILD CRITERIA 1. Prepar3d v3 flight sim software @ mid to high settings. Lots of add-ons. 2. Minimum 3 GHz CPU. Recommended 4GHz according to the flight sim forums. I'm going for 4 GHz minimum. 3. Video card, 6GB memory 4. Liquid cooled for future OC 5. Four monitors : Three 27"+ for windscreen. One smallish for instrument clusters. 6. Oversized PSU for future 2nd video card. 7. Red and white motif (white case with red components and lighting). Doesn't matter much to me, but promised my granddaughters.

See list link below. Thanks.

I think it looks pretty good, but you should be aware that the 1060 can't SLI, so if you're building around expansion plans, you might consider a 480, instead. If you need more power right away, a 1070 is a good bet. I don't know the demands of this sim, personally.

Those 27" screens look pretty good, but their bezels appear a little thick. Might not be an issue, but Dell makes some with awesomely thin bezels around the same price: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/qNGj4D/dell-monitor-s2715h

Think I would recommend going straight for a GTX 1070, especially if you want the option to SLI in the future.
