Default Re: Flight Simulator X Full Version Feedback Thread

So, I reinstalled XP after using Vista pretty much exclusively since before it's release because I was having problems with Vista x86 and FSX. While I was getting the system ready for XP and preparing to scrap Vista I decided to throw Vista x64 back on in a dual boot config to see if I could get better results. It turns out that FSX in Vista x64 under DX9 performs better for me than it does in XP. Who'd a thunk it? I'm finally pleased with my performance and best of all I can stick with Vista and when they fix DX10 for FSX I'll be ready to go.

Sillyeagle, I'm getting well over 30fps in most scenarios at 16QAA, 16xAF, 1360x768, with the settings you recommended.
