Processor first. Can it be overclocked? What mobo you got?Concider a separate harddrive for FS only, should improve performance too.

As FS is extremely processor-dependent, the bottleneck is probably there. Most people will recommend Intel instead of AMD since FS seems to play nicer with Intel processors. Four cores is all FSX is capable of using, so I'd assume it's no better for FS9, but the speed seems a little low. Try overclocking the CPU if possible (and if you're comfortable doing so) and see if that helps.If not, what kind of budget do you have for upgrades?
