Default Upgrading a psu and graphics card?

I was wanting to upgrade my HPa6110n computer to a better PSU and a better graphics card. I want to be able to at the least run FS2004 at max or close to max. and possibly FSX. I am willing to spend between $300-$500 dollars. Thanks for your help!

To point you in the right direction, I would use a 430W builders series >>> Corsair <<< power supply and perhaps an Nvidia 9800GT graphics ??? What slots do you have on your motherboard ? (PCIE ?)

For FSX you might need something more powerful like a GTX460 perhaps. The power supply power should be enough just however to future proof your PC you could go for something like 600 - 750W.

I'll tell you right now as an FSX and FS2004 player, you can't currently upgrade to anything fast enough to run FSX at the highest settings. I use two 5870's in CrossFire and I STILL can't run the game at it's max settings. Just a heads up for when you pull the upgrade trigger. FS2004 runs great at max however.
