I am no expert on X-plane.
I am of the opinion your system may struggle. Have a look at the recommended specifications at http://www.x-plane.com/2016/11/x-plane-11-system-requirements-announced/
Before your decide on any upgrade, download the demo version which can be found at http://www.x-plane.com/desktop/try-it/ and try it. The demo version has limitations and will only run for about 10 minutes from a fixed airport in the USA.
Hope this helps
