Wow... I'm still not quite sure that I can help now.

But if you have found this in the aircraft.cfg file... What is the issue? They are lights... Are they not in the "correct" spot according to what you are seeing?
OR are these files simply not included in the download that you got?

My first thought was sounds, not effects. If it is an effect it may be something having to do with the annimation "speed" of the blades or the intake cone spinner.

Hmm, any reason why you are going with the three sets of 2x2GB RAM? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145224 Two sets of those might be a cheaper alternative for you? To me, it's about the speed, and possible overclocking capability. I may not use it but I'd like to have the ...

Lastly, I'd wait for Windows 7 as it's coming out in a couple months than plop down $180 for Vista Ultimate now. I'm sure there will be "upgrades" available... for a nominal fee of course! And since the offer is on the table, I don't know that I can wait a couple of months. As it is, I have been wa...
