Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
For Flight Simulator you will benefit from a Quad core CPU(like i5 750)but if you can't afford it then stick with your i3 530.
As for VGA,i would recommend getting a more powerful VGA.
ATI HD 5850 would be a good option,but make sure your PSU supports it

and is more Cache more imp or higher clock speed in a processor

OK then go for i5 750 it will good for games like FSX which benefit from a quad core CPU.
And by 1GB ATI card you mean 5850,right ?
And more cache helps in CPU intensive apps

ummm buddy i will like to clarify that i am new to the hardware scene ... sorry to post all sorts of weird questions .... :)

5750 is significantly slower than a 5850,if you can't afford a 5850 then go for 5770,it has an excellent price/performance ration.
About the cache,its not the only factor that makes a CPU better than another one,there are lots of more important factors such as the number of cores,clock speed,etc
i5 750 with HD 5770 would give you a great performance

its a 21" so the res would be 1600X1200 in that case the 5770 would give good performance and newer games take advantage of 4Cores giving 10%+ in games

Hd5770 + i5 = solid Rig

and overclock it and your card will be more powerful

what!

so the choice should be HD5850(if you are a Gamer)

for normal use and minimum Gaming 5770 would be good

It seems the OP can't afford the 5850 because he asked about 5750,but a 5770 can handle games fine(however on resolutions like 1920x1200 some settings like AA or AF have to be turned down in order to get smooth game play)

I'm running two 5770s on a 32" 1080p LCD TV (1920x1080), flanked by two 19" monitors. I rarely have to enable crossfire and drop to one monitor for any game. (with the notable exception that starts with a "C")

I decided to invest in a second 5770 rather than an ACTIVE displayport adapter. System Specs are here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8EusoPORfQ

I think he will do fine with a 5770 at 1920x1200.
