RE: New System For FSX

Sweet choice for CPU. I don't know the prices in the UK for the CPU, but here (in the US) the price difference between the E8500 and E8600 is pretty big ($80) compared to the small speed difference between the two. I'd go with the E8500 and save some money... for the following suggestions below: For...

RE: How To Get From Fairbanks To Prudhoe Bay?

I would say you could rent a car, but I think most companies have a rule that you can't drive the Dalton highway past a certain point, plus there probably are no car rental places in Prudhoe.
