Need help building a computer! For FSX

Okay , I love playing FSX so I'm wanting to build a computer , thing is I know nothing about computers .. I have someone that will put all the **** together for me but I need to buy parts and I don't know what goes to what and what's good stuff for Flight Sim X , I do know that fsx needs a lot of CPU and RAM .. So I've been looking on newegg.com if you could checkout the DIY combos and tell me what's a good one it will be great,y appreciated my limit is 500 to 750

 has been a member for 10 years
CPU: i5 2500k
Ram: Samsung 2x 4gb
Gpu, gtx660/670, or 7850/7870(depending mainly on how much you can spend)
Power supply 500w+: I like the rosewill hive series but depends what's on sale at newegg be sure to spend the extra money on a decent one. It's important.
Mobo: asrock extreme3 gen3 z68. Seems to still be the best bang for your buck
Case: whatever you can afford that has the best cooling.
Don't forget a cd drive if you need one.

That CPU and those gpu's should be available in your budget
