Graphics Freaking Hate Me?!

For some reason, my graphics are WAAAAAAY worse than other people's. I have the graphics and everything set as high as possible, but still I don't get the best. Look at this:

See how you can see the jet spinning and everything? Yeah... mine is NOTHING even similar to that. What's wrong??

Post some screenshots.

Tell us what video card you have.

Hadn't played FSX in a bit, but pulled it up the other night and I have no background at all. Even when picking a plane to fly.

I did a fresh in stall on this system about 6 months ago (FSX Gold) and ran in both service packs. Did some flying for about a month, then work issues took over.

Specs of the 'puter:
Win7 Ult 64bit
Q9560
8G DDR2 8500
2 x ATI 5770 in Crossfire mode.
(Note: Not sure if I played before or after I installed the second card, but think I have had it running with both).
ASUS Rampage MoBo
2 x750GB Seagates RAID 0

No luck googling this.

Trying to avoid a reinstall for obvious reasons. Have graphics set to pretty much high on everything (works fine in BFBC2, MOH games with no problems)
Any hints/suggestions?

I don't believe FSX makes use of Crossfire..

Not sure if that's the root of your problem, but just an FYI.

Well... he is using a aftermaket aircraft and a aftermarket scenery pack...
but the poor guy should have gotten the FSDT McCarran International Airport addon as well.

Thing is, addon packs add detail to FSX adjusting the sliders on a stock FSX system is not going to improve quality.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll hit a stopping point and pull the bridge and see what happens.

I will add this: The selected aircraft does appear dimly and is rotating, and also leaving ghost trails, so it's not altogether not giving me any video. I'll leave results for the record.
