Inspiron 3847 upgrades

This question has suggested answer(s)

I've done a lot of browsing and research on what upgrades I can do to my Dell Inspiron 3847 desktop.

I would like to upgrade the CPU to a i5.

I would like to install a dedicated graphics card. Would like to get something with at least 4GB memory. I've  been told with the stock case and limited space that cards under 10' are a must

With the above two mentioned upgrades I will also need a upgraded power-supply. so which PSU will be sufficient ?

I would also like to upgrade the ram to 16GB(8GBx2) which would be max.

The intent here is to run X-plane which is a flight sim.

Current Specs:

Inspiron 3847

intel i3 4150 @3.50GHz

Haswell 22nm Technology 

8.00Gb dual channel DDR3

088DT1 mobo

HD Graphics 4400

Bios A04

Any guidance would be appreciated.
