Have you applied all the patches for FSX? FSX is very processor bound and the original .exe only supported a single core. The patches enable support for multiple cores.

as stated above, it's very cpu intensive, have you tried overclocking your 920? What resolution are you playing at?

I can't think of any logical reason. Have you tried uninstalling and uninstalling fsx? Are you trying a crazy AA level or something?
