Default Dual Cards..... Worth it?

So I have decided to go with the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition processor with the Daimond Radeon HD 5770 video card.

It is a package deal through tigerdirect.com

I mainly chose this package to the price, $324.99

The motherboard I have chosen, Asus M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX.
The best price I have found is $99.99 from tigerdirect.com

This will be used mainly for the game FSX. How high of settings will I be able to achieve with that video card? I am possibly going with a 24" 1920x??? resolution monitor.

Now my main question is, how well will this card run that game and what is the highest setting I could be able to use and also will using a 2nd card really make that much difference? Should I go ahead and purchase the 2nd video card? I am really on a tight budget and everything I have chosen is $833.25 for the tower only. I already have a keyboard, and mouse. The only other thing I will have to purchase is a Monitor.I will possibly get into the game XPLANE 9 as well.

Thanks for the help,
Michael

Im pretty sure youll be able to max that game out on its highest settings. I can max out splinter cell BFBC2 fallout 3, and all sorts of other games with my m4a79xtd evo a 5770 card and an phenom x3 at 1600x900
