I don't have the best computer, but I can run FSX lag free with all my bars on either medium high or high. Then I check my frame rate and It rarely gets above 7 or 8. Is there anything I can do to increase my frame rate or does it not really matter.
If the program operates smoothly enough for you, no it doesn't matter. Changing settings within FS will effect your frame rate. To improve them normally means getting a new processor, faster graphics card or more RAM, many people do all three. 🙂
You've got low expectations🙂
I find less than 10 really spoils the experience
