How much of a difference would I see based on what I have now. I plan to keep the same CPU,graphics & ram. Oh yeah,is the 8800GTX PCIEx1 or 2?

Its not worth it IMO. The additional pciex bandwidth only benefits crossfire users. Its just a sideways upgrade for you. Save up your money and just get an i5 or i7 setup in the future. :D

8800gtx is 1.1 i believe.

GPU upgrade would be better for the money IMO.

Would going for a Q9650 or Q9550 and keep the present card be better in regards to FSX. If I go this route than I would have to wait untill much later in the year to upgrade the card and by then who knows what could be out.

It sounds like i7 is the way to go for FSX...
