So is it worth jumping up to these or just waiting it out till a better driver comes out?

just wanted to report, this set fixed one issue for me

in MotoGP07, in previous sets while playing sidebar kept blinking and flashing throught the game. With this set this doesn't happen.

I had that happen today from hibernate. Still my rig is running well and I am a'feard to mess with it. I will just shut it down instead till some performance improvement drivers release.

WhenTF is nvidia gonna fix their driver problems with FSX?

The flashing runway textures in DX10 suck. ACES contacted nvidia about it 2 months ago. It looks like a simple z buffer issue, should be simple to fix.

Is the Acceleration xpack the only way to enable dx10 in fsx?

Yeah, normally SP1 for FS would be released to bring DX10 functionality, but since this is not gonna happen, u need to buy FSX to get DX10 and still it doesn't give some extra eyecandy, seen already on pics

Same here, I noticed the min frame rates go up by as much as 10 which is a crazy gain.
