Well if you can hold out a couple of more months, you might want to see about the Intel Prescott Pentium series offerings. They're supposed to be the real future of the Pentium CPU, not these P4C CPU's. EDIT: You might have to buy some PC3200 RAM to go along with the P4C if you haven't got some already.

I built a system with a 2.4Ghz P4, combined with a 128MB radeon 9500Pro and 512MB DDR pc2700, its a very nice system for a good price.

If all you play is Flight Simulator, you won't need much beyond a Radeon 9700 as far as speed goes. Right now, I'm running the newest one fine on a Overclocked Radeon 9500 Pro and a P4 1.6 Northwood overclocked to 2.4. However, would be nice to go with some more speed, cause FS is a major system hog, I'd say chip speed with a 2.4 Northwood would be fine, you can overclock it to 2.8 or 3.0 usally. For a video card, I'd go with a Radeon 9700 Pro, either that, or a Radeon 9500 Pro and a Gig of Ram. Expect to pay about 180 for the chip, and about 250 for the Video card if you go that route.However, if your planning on playing something like HL2, you need to wait a little, and go all out with a Radeon 9800 Pro and somewhere near a 3.0 processor, as HL2, and most games based around it's engine (Which will be nearly everything) will need such a system to run.http://www.oldsameplace.com/avsig1.jpg
