Im going to upgrade from an AMD 3500 with 2 gigs ram to a quad core AMD Phenom II 965 3.4 GHz 125w cpu with 4 gigs of DDR3 1333 ram. What settings can I expect to run FSX on? Will this also be good for X Plane 10? Thanks.

That will be an exellent system, you should see decent settings with FSX, Don't expect to be maxed out though.

What Graphics card will you be using?

Not sure. We are wanting to move and get another car so the budget for" toys" (as my wife says) is very small.
