Hi guys, after years of dreaming about having an FSX rig I'm finally going to get one (Birthday soon) and after years of looking on forums
I've comprised this list:
i5 2500K
GTX 650Ti
Asus P8Z77-V LK
8Gb DDR3 1866Mhz
1Tb 7200RPM
I plan to run addons such as PMDG, Captain sim...etc and addon scenerys and want to achive 30Fps+ on high if not ulra high settings.
I am planning to OC to 4Ghz but I'm not sure if the GPU of the PSU are up to it but being a teenager I'm on a budgit :fou: 
So what so we think?
Thanks in advance!

I would do this a bit differently.

If you are going to overclock, go for the 3570K and a CPU cooler, as you need one better than it comes with to overclock with.

The 650Ti is also not that strong. I would recommend springing for a 7850 if you can; you will be much happier with that.

Also, make sure your memory is 1.5V.
