Hi Ryan,Thanks for your reply, before i run the suggested 4gig path for fsx as suggested in the MD11 users guide i just want to make sure i do it in the right place.I run a core 2 duo at 3.3ghz 4gb of ram and Nvidia 9800GTX, so i should not have a problem, but tonight i fleqw from beijing to Tokyo about 3 hrs and just after touchdown on roll out i got an OOM error.I want to do as much as i can to get better performance. My FSX settings are by no means maxed at all.Any tips?ThanksNicholasBB

Ah you're doing the 3GB patch, ok... The OOM errors are unfortunately just a fact of life with FSX I'm afraid. Using Vista x64 with 4GB is the best way to minimize them.
