Pass on FSX for a number of reasons with your machine.
Not enough ram with W7, low power supply, low quality video card and a Celeron CPU.
You would be much better of with FS9 (2004).
Your computer should be able to handle it nicely.
Thanks for posting all your specs, it helps more than you know.
Good luck and let us know what you decide to do.
