My suggestions for FSX:1. Stay with Intel, go for the fastest processor you can afford, overclock if necessary 2. More memory does not help3. RAID does not help4. Fast nvidia GPU is good, 460 is OK, 560 is better5. Dedicated SSD for FSX is good if you can afford itps NO system can handle maximum settings in FSX (!) be prepared to turn down some settings

Save your money and get the i5-2500k. Use that money for a better GPU instead.
