Hi, Im in the middle of buying a new computer and i was wondering if this setup would be able to max out flight simulator with good fps. Im also using this computer for surfing the internet , and homework. My budget is 1000$ - 1250$ and im 100 dollars overprice with what i think is a perfect setup. Im using the site ncix.ca, so if anyone thinks i should change some for the same price/ less and get same performance , or not better please let me know .

Thermaltake TR2 600W ATX12V V2.2 24PIN Power Supply with 120MM Fan
Thanks in Advance for your response, i will give helper top comment please help me out. ( also can someone give me some insight on turbo boost?, what is it , is it like ocing? Also will it give me alot of heat on a normal stock cooler?)
If you're not going to overclock you should just pick up a regular i5 2400-2500 or a i72600. Save a couple bucks on that. Preferably the 2400 2500 since it is cheaper and gaming difference between i5 i7 are negligible.
For graphics card I would suggest either a 7850 or 7870 if you can fit it since they both have more VRAM and are more future proof atm for gaming.
Turbo boost is when the cpu automatically boosts speeds according to what you're doing to increase performance when needed. Not really overclocking per se, heat produced once again is negligible and the cpu cooler will handle it. If you start watching temps like a hawk you'll never be pleased with what you have. My 2 cents.
One thing I would suggest is picking up a similar 600 watt power supply that is 80+ certified. Corsair, Seasonic, Antec are good brands that will give you peace of mind that your computer won't have issues supplying power in the future.
