Thanks. They're at 1600x1200 16xAA/16xAF on the system in my sig.

FSX is totally CPU bound though, and really likes memory bandwidth.

I don't normally buy fast RAM, but I'll be getting fast RAM next time specifically so I can run FSX as fast as possible. I'm hoping SP1 and DX10 combined with a 3.5GHz Core2Duo system at the end of the year will let me run with mostly max settings, but we will see how the patches affect performance.

Both SP1 and DX10 should help relieve the CPU boundedness.
