Alright guys, I have an intel Q9550 over clocked to 3.51ghz, 4gb's Dominator, and an GTX260 Super Clocked version. When I run FSX i get horrible frames, as low as 18fps. And even in Flight Simulator 2004 with addons I get around 22fps and lower at times. Why am i getting such low fps? Is their a rendering issue? I would think FS9 would be getting around 30+fps with the computer I have. Help my out!!
Quad core CPU should be sufficient to give you decent frame rates. I managed to obtain 25FPS plus using my old E8400 (stock speed) and an oldish 8800GT (512) - so something is not right with your system.
Can you give us a full list of components used ? ie mobo, HSF, PSU etc ?
