Resolution & framerate?

Friends I just recently got a new LCD monitor 19" wide screen. After changing the resolution according to the screen I see a great drop in framerate in FSX, drop about 5-7. Has this resolution has an effect on framerate? I am using Vista 32bit E6420 Duo Core, Nvidia 8500GT 512MB and 3gb ram DDR2.

Yes, the resolution effects frame rate. The more detailed the picture(higher resolution) requires the video card and processor to work harder thus reduced frame rate. You will also see variations in frame rate with dense scenery versus less dense scenery; fly over a very large city and your frame rate will decrease.

CRJ is exactly right Wink

Hello fellow simmers,
Learned something several months ago when I went with a ViewSonic 22" WSM - In fsx.cfg, there's a line for "Wide-view aspect" - default is "false" - "CHANGE" to True.............really helped me and I am running
1680x1050 32bit with minimal fps loss - using 8800GTS 640 meg.

Maybe this will help some.
