Yes, and you do need more memory and I hope you have at least a 750w power supply-name brand.

Will FSX be held back by that amount of RAM? And the power supply is only 530 watt

I'm guessing that you are using W7 64bit, then yes it will be at a disadvantage with only 2gigs.
530w is just sufficient proving that you don't have too many peripherals sucking power from the power supply.
Your entire machine uses that p/s, including more ram when and if you add it.

Recommended now is 750w to 1,000w.

Actually im only using Windows 7 32 Bit. Will it still be a disadvantage?

Minimum requirements for W7 32 bit is 1gig-minimum!

It will use more than that, ram is cheap...see if you can add another 2gigs.
Like XP 32bit that's all it will recognize and use.

Haha its not very cheap for me cause im only 14 and i have a really tight budget for the pc. It is DDR3 does that make a difference?

DDR3 is the best right now.
You still need more, try it load the sim.
