  1. Budget? You need a quadcore processor with fsx from what ive heard either a Q6600 upwards or new i7.
  2. Get a quad core..and not AMD..they're crap compared to the Intel cores.
    No need for an i7 cpu as they're slower in games than the Core series (so far).
    Loads of ram..4 gbs and a 64bit operating system.
    At least a GTX260/280 or Radeon 4870/4870X2.
    Haven't played mine since I upgrade my system but on a QX6700+8800GTX I was getting approx 25-40fps depending on scenery with max settings at 1920x1200.
  3. My Budget Is $400 ..............................
  4. Have a look at the GPU benchmarks for FSX:


    It's a demanding game, and it's worth seeing what you can expect from the different graphics cards

    Actually from looking at the benchmarks, it would appear the game favors Nvidia cards. I wouldn't bother with the 4870 if you're buying specifically for this game, as it's beaten even by a lowly 7800GTX in some benchmarks.
