CPU: I-5 750 $180
MB: Asrock P55 Pro $114 - $10 rebate
Cooler: Artic freezer 7 Pro Rev2 $37
Memory G. Skill Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 1333 $70
Video: XFX Hd-577A 5770 $180
Case Antec 300 $55 - $20 rebate
PS: Antec Earthwatts 500W $70 - $20 rebate
Monitor: Acer P235 23" 1920x1080 $150
OS: Windows 7 home 64 bit $105
HD: Samson Spinpoint F3 500gb $55

This comes to $1007 with rebates from New Egg.
Any suggestions? Thank you all!!!

    Yes! Since you have an aftermarket heatsink you should OC the i5. This will help improve the performance of FSX.

    Did you bought the computer? I have a new computer, almost similar to you, can run FSX (default settings) at almost 87-127fps. I have a Gigabyte P55A-UD3P mobo and a Sapphire HD5750. No OC needed. Just enable the Turbo Boost.
