Back in the day, my first FSX install was onto an off the shelf computer bought from my local office supply shop. It did the job ( I am typing on it now). However depending on how immersed you are or intend to be in flight simming you'll find that addons quickly outgrow the performance capabilities. Many users on these forums will have selected the key components of their  rig (generally based on budget and what was available at the time), and either built it themselves or had a local tech person build it for them. I'd have a look at some of the forums about popular choices and have a chat with your local computer guru about sourcing and building the parts for you.

Don't forget to future-proof where possible for an inevitable move away from FSX to 64bit (notice I didn't specifically say  P3D as there are other platforms, but that is what I meant :cool:
