scenery resolution in tiles?

Is it normal to have the scenery increase resolution in blocks (or tiles) as you fly over it. I have every slider to the highest setting and all boxes ticked, yet only approx. 5km of scenery is rendering in hi res. As I approach the next "tile" of blurry ground texture, it transforms into hi res, but it's a shame the hi res doesn't extend out to maybe 20kms to allow a better transition. I'm wanting to stay with fs9 with all my add ons, as I really haven't seen anything in fsx that impresses me yet. The only thing that dissapoints me is this blocky texture rendering.
Does anyone have a sneaky fix for this?

My rig:
AMD 3700+ San Diego
2Gb dual channel Corsair Ram
ATI X800XL 256mb Video Card
Creative Audigy 4 Sound Card
Games HDD is a 80GB Raptor 10000rpm
Operating System ia a 80 GB Raptor 10000rpm
(+750gb worth of Seagate 7500rpm file storage hdd's)

FPS sits happily between 90 & 100.

So I don't think it's my system.

You will find that at times.
Turn down your FPS to about 40 to save resources for the scenery.
You can also save by turning down clouds and AI traffic.
Shut off shadows and it may look better flying.

thanks for that. Ijust tried what you said but still only got hi res rendering in approx 5km blocks. It's frustrating but I can live with it.
Thanks again for the rapid response.

Sooner or later you have to step up in cards, either the one below or wait for the DirectX and see if the first out are good.

I've still got an agpx8 motherboard. This card is about as good as agp gets. My next rig is at least 12 months away. I'm waiting for dx10 cards to arrive and throwing a physics card into the mix as well!

Sorry, for some unknown reason I thought your card was PCIe.
