FSX Lag on Super Computer

Hello all,

Before I get into my question, here is some information on my PC.
My PC specs are as follows:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4690K CPU @ 3.5GHz
AMD Radeon (TM) R9 390 Series [8 Gigabytes]
16 Gigs of ram (4 sticks of 4)

Can anyone tell my why I can play any game I want to play at 60+ FPS at max settings(GTA V for example), but when I try to crank the settings in FSX I'm only getting about 20-30 FPS.
I bought PMDG 737-800/900 NGX and when I'm in the virtual cockpit my frames drop to about 20 even with the scenery details at the lowest possible settings.
I really want to be able to get the max out of my computer because that's what I paid for, but I can't for the life of me figure out why this is happening.
Any information will definitely help me.
You can email me at if you have any questions.

First with a machine that nice I hope you are using a 64bit version of an operating syatem, not a 32 bit.

Lock it at 20fps, and try it that way.
The aircraft you speak of is very graphic intensive and is a power hog.

Let us know how it works out.
