Thanks for Reading This:
What is better for FSX, considering that it's so processor intense? An I7 4500u- 1.8 GHz, max 3.0 or an I5-2.5 GHz....I thought any I7 would be faster than an I5. I think I read somewhere that the number of cores aren't relevant for FSX. Just don't get it...

Will---
16GB
I7 4500u 1.8 GHz
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 750M 2GB GDDR5
1TB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive

Will-- this setup run at acceptable smooth steady frame rates??

I know you guys get sick of these questions, but please help me...
Thanks

It looks good.

When FSX came out it only used 1 core.
SP1 was a patch, then you load SP2 and that made FSX use all cores.
I found the best way of installing both patches was to buy The Acceleration Pack.
It contains both SP1 and SP2 and integrates it into the system flawlessly.
If you didn't buy FSX yet get the Gold version, it contains both disks.
Cheap on Amazon.

I had to make this decision recently, I went for the i5 and overclocked it to 3.4ghz. I dropped in 12mb of ddr3 and a gtx 570. I get 20+Fps with the Ngx uk2000 scenery Rex and traffic. Looks really good. Just to add I have fsx installed on its own SSD drive.

Sounds good, I lock mine at 20fps too (FSX) FS9 has to be at 30fps.
Now go and enjoy a flight.
