Default Re: Flight Simulator X Full Version Feedback Thread

Damn I wish I could get this game to play at reasonable framerates. I actually built my machine ground up for this game, but still can't play it at anything higher than medium details with all AI traffic turned off, water set to 2.x low, and bloom disabled. Crazy thing is everything else I own runs smooth as silk, and my machine benches well above similar systems using applications like 3DMark / Superpi. Flight Simulator X, however, just runs like a turd with me only getting about 14-17 FPS in most areas with the ingame AA enabled at 1920x1200. Would getting a faster processor let me turn on some of the eye candy?

Intel QX6700 @ 3.2 Ghz

8 GB Corsair Dominator 8500
MSI TwinFroz GTX 470
