Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
It isn't worth it to replace your cards with 1 GTX 480. FSX is a CPU-limited game, so getting a quad core CPU will help you more than getting a VGA.

Get a new cpu and stay with your current card. It is poor judgment to buy a new card for a cpu limited game. Also throw in a SDD for FSX as it reads the disk a lot.

Your Motherboard supports the Q9xxx quads.Get a Q9550 and you should be fine with FSX.You would not have to upgrade any other component.

Like i said FSX is a CPU-limited game so changing your cards aren't worth it.Get a quad core CPU and you'll be fine.

Also a GTX295x2 is a monster setup even today! So you wont be facing any problems with Frame Rates!

Once again the secret to decent or better fps in FSX is a good cpu pared with a quick SSD for paging since most hard drives barely manage KB/s under random 4k read and writes while SSD are usually 10x as fast in that area while easily double the sequential read and occasionally writes as well on the high end models. Treat FSX as one does the hog that is GTA IV.

I finally changed my system: 2 hard disc WD abyss 500 giga in raid intel Core 2 quad 9650 3ghz, Msi GTX 480 and Samsung syncmaster T260 26''. fsx it runs much better and it fills more fast terrain load specifically in cities that it has a lot of buildings...thanks to all
