Help with upgrade choices

Recommended Posts

I would welcome some advice on upgrading my system.  I currently have a i5 2500k CPU with a 700 mhertz Graphics card (512 RAM), and 8 Gigs (2 x 4) of generic RAM.  What can I do on a budget to improve this? Will I see much improvement by upgrading RAM and video card.  Yes, I know that CPU is king with FSX, but I am thinking that my vid card and Ram are still holding my system back, and that I should be able to get more out of my i5 than low 20s FPS.


Currently contemplating replacing RAM with one or two 8GB sticks, and adding a GTX 750 with 2GB.  Does this sound reasonable, or should I put my money elsewhere?  Have about $300 budgeted for upgrades.


I do not use this system for other games, but would like it to run stably in low 30s with default scenery and PMDG aircraft.
