    Hi, just about to upgrade my pc, which is used mostly for FSX. Changing my i5 2500K@4.5ghz to i7 4770 @4.6ghz. This willmean upgrading the RAM, GPU and Mobo.
    Is there any way I can do this without having to do a fresh install of everything. (The flight sim and add ons took 2 days last time, so I am keen to avoid this if pos.)
    Thanks for your advice

    If you use the same Brand MB with same Brand Chip Set, it may could work! I'd done that a few times with only once getting a problem!

    You could also do an 'Windows Easy Transfer', not for the setting, for the applications just for to be on the sure side! Do that to an external HDD if you have or use an other internal one, just disconnect after the transfer is done.
