I am really starting to get annoyed with flight simulator x now.
the problem is the fps which is like 8 at med settings and get this.... my computer is a
quad core q8400
ati 4870 512mb
3gb 800mhz ram
seagate 500gb raid hardrive
msi p7n sli motherboard
and all driver are up to date =(
this is realy annoying me because all my other games run smooth and nice but as soon as i run fsx its not smooth at all its all jitty and weird and the other thing is when i turn off everything in the game setting the fps bumps up to a measly 56fps.... now is that ok for that system or is there somthing wrong because ive tried everything i can online and offline to fix it and no luck so far.
my main suspects are as follows
vsync is on and i cant find a way to turn it and get this, its off on my ati ccc....
i have a virus but i dont think viruses could effect one game...
or something relating to driver overlaying..
please i need a good answer and one that will help or fix this annoying flaw.
That is a dual channel board... so if you have 2x1.5gb you're fine (although I've never seen a 1.5gb ram stick for sale aanywhere)
*If you are using 3sticks of 1gb, you're actually hurting yourself as they will run in single channel
Your computer specs are still pretty good... and that is still a really good video card. You may want to pickup a good heatsink/fan and overclock the CPU - that might be your best bet as bumping it up to 3.1 or 3.2 will show big results in FSx.
