I cannot get smooth graphics in FSX (jerky movements) especially with big jets. (Smaller aircraft such as the Cesna 152 are better)

My system is as follows:-

AMD4200 dual processor; Asus A8N -SLI motherboard: Asus EN8800GTX graphics card; 2 Gb RAM; 1 x 250Gb and 1 x 200Gb SATA HDs. Win XP

Any suggestions/ideas would be welcome

Thanks

There are endless tweaks but the easiest and most effective for me is turning down detail radius from large to medium. Also turn down autogen as much as you can. I have a high end system but still use "normal." Also turning down the number of cars on the street helps as well as air traffic.

hi fellow fliers

have now managed to get a reasonably smooth program by adjusting the settings you all suggested. many thanks

FSx is a greedy graphics programme. Never come across one like it b4!!

I ran FS2004 at the maximum settings on my 8800 card and never had a jitter!

Confused Hi guys

I did a bit more digging around and discovered that my version of System X was flawed. I down loaded the latest version from Microsoft. result an amazing performance improvement in FSX

cheers

Hi, you asked Karlw about frame rate. Do you change this on the program or in your computer settings? If it is computer settings, where do I go? Thanks, Paul

Sorry I saw this post and wanted to say, I ran FS2004 maxed out with a Nvidia 6600AGP Stock with 1 GB RAM and an amd 3500+ stock 2.2ghz with no jitters

I have recently purchased a 8800GTX as well and still have issues with the frame rate. After some digging around and reading other posts on this forum i have decided to upgrade my processor to the Core 2 Quad (Q6600) which I plan to overclock. As i understand it, the quad core capability (which in this chip is basically 2 x 2.4GHz Core 2 6600's) will help with frame rates at even the busiest airports when its overclocked to about 3GHz. I have read reviews that have found the Q6600 to be stable at about 3.4GHz overclocked (but this depends on your motherboard and also your cooling - it will get really hot).

Since i would no doubt screw it up if i tried to achieve this myself i have found a very good article to help me:
http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2007/07/25/overclocking_intel_core_2_quad_q6600/1

Oh i am also getting all this equipment tomorrow. After i set it up i will test it all and post the results if anyone is interested. I also have in my office an Apple Cinema 24" screen which can achieve 1920 x 1200. From what i have seen on Tom's, the 8800GTX should be able t handle this suitably...lets see.
