Well that's much better than my 5+ year old system (although I have the same graphics card), and it runs smoothly on mine with both enabled...

Edit: obviously I upgraded the gfx card!

A GTX 1060 is a better option.

It may run smooth depending on a lot of settings in the sim. ;)

Normally, a GTX 960+ is good enough for P3D. Unless you need the settings on MAX, medium settings w/ addons should be fine, around 30-60 FPS. I have a 750ti and I get about 25 in Aerosoft A320, which is very frame heavy. 

 

A GTX 1060 is a better option.

 

The 970 you picked out is about $290 USD. The GTX 1060 on Amazon is around the $250-$300 mark. I would go for a 1060 as well.

I run a 960 on i7 3770, I think with your proposed CPU the 970 may end up being close to a bottleneck. Since 970 and and 1060 are comparable in price, I would suggest the 1060 also.
