    FSX doesn't really benefit from the high end video cards. As long as you have a video card that supports DirectX 10 (if you are running Vista) and has at least 256MB I would put your money towards the fastest CPU you can afford. A faster CPU will give better performance but a faster video card may not.

    Checkout Intel E8400 Core 2 duos. Those are 3.0 Ghz and very fast with a Nvidia 9600GT 512mb. Or if you want cheap Intel quads, you can check out Intel Q8200. You will need at least 2GB ddr2 mems to compliment those fast processors.
