As FSX is not all that demanding, you should be able to run at High settings (or better) just fine with a GTX560ti and i3. You shouldn't have any issues at all in terms of playability.

Yea you are right i played it yesterday, idk if you want to get a lowend core i5. but the Core i3 should be plenty. the thing that supprised me is the game recommends 6gb of ram.

The system requirements for FSX are actually pretty low (see link below):

My father-in-law flys at high/ultra on an AMD Athlon 5000+ with 4GB RAM with an AMD HD4650 just fine.

Yes you will be fine. i3 and GTX 560 ti will be more than enough to handle Flight Simulator

i5-2400 will be better. However as previously mentioned, FSX isn't all that demanding so the i3 would work just fine.

i5-2400, H61 mobo, GTX 560Ti would be a really nice set up :) 

Jump up the price range a little more, and get i5-2500k (over-clockable), Z68 motherboard and GTX 560Ti.

Tone it down a little, but allow for future upgrades....

i3-2100, Z68 motherboard, GTX 560Ti.

Cheapest option,

i3-2100, H61 motherboard, GTX 560Ti.


EDIT: If you post us a budget and let us know what websites/country your buying the components from, I'm sure we can come up with a build to suit your needs :)  a build advice template can be found here: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/261222-13-build-adv...

"More" PC is always better, in general, when it comes to the playability of both current and future games. Build the rig you can afford and have fun!

Yes, it will play just fine, especially if you get the 2500k version and overclock it a bit.
