Let me make a prediction. In two years at the latest you'll be buying FSX again.

It's a shame you never tried these tweaks before taking it back:-

They may have worked wonders - they have on my modest system!

Awaiting Delivery of:-

Intel Core 2 Duo 6800
1Gb GeForce 7900 7950 Ultimate
3Gb DDR2 667Mhz RAM
500Gb SATA Hard Drive

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but I'm running FSX on a new Intel D975XBX mobo with an Intel Core 2 X6800, 2GB RAM, and GeForce 7950 GX2 2GB onboard memory, SATA HD (2 of 'em), and FSX performance is poor. Maxed sliders in FSX lead to a slide show over populated areas.

Those "tweaks" you mentioned are nothing more than kluges to dumb down FSX, and reduce its features to low enough levels our hardware can deal with it. You can accomplish that with the sliders in the "game". But what's the point of including all that stuff in FSX in the first place, if bleeding edge hardware can't run it? What was Mother MS thinking?

By the time technology reaches the point in hardware performance that FSX can be run with everything turned on, it'll be time for a new version of the application, and we'll start this all over again. MS needs to give up on DirectX as the API for flightsims and go to OpenGL. The problems will disappear overnight.

Oh, and BTW, forgot to mention, if you haven't already read it, FSX is NOT coded to take advantage of multi-core cpus, so your new Core 2 will operate like it is not a dual core processor in FSX. Altogether now, WHAT WAS MOTHER MS THINKING? Crying or Very sad

FSX is Optimized for Vista and the new DirectX10 graphics pipeline, MS was thinking about getting things running smoother on Vista instead of 2000/XP !!

Oh, dual core is more supported in Vista too BTW Surprised
