SLOW FRAME RATES WITH GOOD SYSTEM

Pro Member Trainee

I have Fsx on an acer T180 system with dual core AMD 2.20 ghz
3 gig ram and a Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTS graphics card.
Vista Home premium
I would of thought that this system would give me good frame rates but I only get between 11 and 18 fps when I have most of the settings high

Is this ok or should the frame rates be higher!!

I'm running a 8800gtx, xp, 3.0 gighrtz dual core, 4 gigs ddr2, and yes with most settings on high, that sounds pretty close to the mark, you'll probably want to upgrade your processer to intel quad core before you see any real improvement.

I will tell you this guys. I run 2 gigs of corssair RAM, 7600 GS OC 512mb video card AGP ! and motherboard is AGP too, most importent is my CPU Pentium duol core 3.2 ghz, if not duol core I would not even play this game. I got all settings on high, no lag nothing, and my frames per second locked on 95.

This sim works much better on an Intel Core Duo system as tiger stated
It also works much better with Windows XP than with Windows Vista.

the Athlon X2 @ 2.2 ghz. is great, but not for FSX.

the only thing I could suggest is make sure you have purged your system of any free bloat garbage that came pre-installed on your Acer.
Get Windows Vista trimmed down to the bare minimum with annoyances, bloat and unnecessary services turned off.
Run it plain (classic style)
Get rid of any unneeded programs in your startup folder.
May help a little... Wacko
