Happy to report that the GTX1050 is firmly in place in it's new home. Install was easy. Download drivers BEFORE install. Set it up and VERY happy to report (seriously) almost a 300% increase in performance. Now, I do have a Quad Core Processor, 36GB Ram (I know a waste for FSX) and run Win 10 Pro 64-bit. Before the new card at places like San Luis I was getting average 17-20 now getting high 50 and well into 60 FPS. I know FPS isn't the real deal breaker but system runs cooler, load times faster. Overall very happy. Still looking at some serious tweaking this weekend. (open to any reliable tweaks that you care to pass along) All in all, very happy I got the card. Big thanks to stevekirks for pointing this out in the first place. A very inexpensive upgrade if your PC needs a new life!
