That should be plenty of horsepower. The only advice I would have is to get a better PSU.

Meh, a $35 80+ Bronze PSU seems a little out of place in a $1700 build, especially with how cheap (and high quality) EVGA's 80+ Gold fully modular units are.

Which flight sim are you flying with? Just heads up that FSX is restricted to 32-bit and X-Plane isn't optimised to mmultithreading. There's no need to upgrade your system, and it should be able to run X-Plane at extreme settings (right now I'm running a 760 @ very high settings and I can't crank up because of VRAM).

That PSU is fine for SLI in future, and you are fine on getting a mid tower.
