Ill reply with more details when I have some more time but take a look at my computer specs in my signature.  This is the rig I just bought and I only play FSX right now.  I have settings on fsx mostly on high, some are maxed out some are not.. and I get frame rates from 15-100 depending on how busy the scenery is that I am playing in.  The game is just so computer resource intensive.  On average I'd say I get around 25 frames per second.  In scenery that isnt that busy with buildings, planes, etc. I usually get like 40+ frame rates but in scenery like JFK or airports with tons of planes and other traffic, my frame rates go down to like 15-20.
System:
HAF X942 / i7 3930k 6-core cpu / ASUS P9x79 Deluxe MOBO
16gb DS ram / Corsair 1050HX PSU / Two - Intel 320 series 120gb SSD's
WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD / GTX570 2.5gb GPU / Noctua D14 Cooler

Kane860-Thanks for your reply. Your rig is impressive. I dont have the funds for anything like that. Was looking at the ODE LEVEL 1 OR 2 ? MY SYSTEM NOW Is OLD DELL DIMENSION 3000 WITH PENTIUM 4 2.9 C P U AND INTEGRATED GRAPHICS.1 gb memory. 80 gb hard drive. Best fps i get is around 20 all the time. ODE has to be better? System freezes or lags so far behind on final approches that i never know where the plane will end up.

Welcome to the forums mustang56!

When choosing ODE levels or custom configs, there are a lot of factors in play. Building around FSX is definitely a good starting place. In order to draw more attention to your search for the best-bang-for-your-buck rig, I'd recommended creating a thread in the Configuration section, where you're likely to get a lot more views!

Here's the link:
