I would not just blame it on a weak CPU. There are so many variables that can cause blurry or slow scenery loading that it is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. I did notice from your screen shot that you have what looks like other applications running while you

Yes I'd want a clean System Tray there in your lower right corner for sure. Looks like you've got soundvol and Removable Storage Manager icons in there, plus two I don't recognize. :)It *is* like a needle in a haystack...so many variables.All I can say is, I haven't gotten any blurries yet with my new machine. I would think a 6000+ would be enough cpu to avoid blurries at 150 knots. My 4000+ with 2 gigs of DDR2 and a 256 meg vcard did not blurry at 150 kts, but then again, I didn't run with that much vis or autogen going, either. I also locked frames, but that was a single-core processor. Yours is dual.You do look like you're running an unrealistically high visibility setting (rare to see 40-50-60 mi vis in real life at low level) which can have an impact on performance.Also your autogen looks to be dense or higher?? not sure. Plus, we don't know the state of your machine at the time you took the screenshot. Was the mem saturated after a 5 hour FS session? Had the machine been on all day? Etc etc.RhettFS box: E8500 (@ 3.16 ghz), AC Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64ASX Client: AMD 3700+ (@ 2.6 ghz), 7800GT

Those are all valid pointsSystem tray: BitDefender virus scanner (not scanning, just there, not sure how much its eating), HP Scanner wizard, sound control, and "click to remove hardware" - I have a card reader attachedI had been running for a little over 2 hoursI'm not sure, sometimes the tiles load at 250kts, other times 150kts is too fast. It would be interesting to have someone with a more powerful system just run the exact flight and see if they are sharp textures.

Try flying the Alphasim SR-71 at mach 3 plus over 80 grand!You leave the world behind......Do not fret. I along with a few freinds who have even faster machines than me start to leave behind textures around 200. Also depends mostly of the games settings.I have turned off EVERYTHING. All autogen/buildings ect and you can still blur it out.Some planes even cause scenery blurs all by themselves.If their was a specific,cure all fix, that would be a popular and rich man.

Do you guys with your "rich man machines" run any other software?I run a lot of different games and things, cluttering up my hard drive heheThat's prolly half the problem.This was my upgrade, so I could have possible gone with a E6600 when I got it but the AMD was a little cheaper. My next upgrade (a few years from now for sure) will be whatever yields the best bang for the buck. Maybe it will be DDR4 ram hehe

It's all relative of course...270 would be quite the step up from what my financial adviser allowed at the time heheI was impressed going from my AMD3700 to the 6000 though, I can definitely enjoy FSX in the rural areas now with all my fancy GA planes, and that's mainly where I fly.

These look good, and have been verified as happy on P5E3-Premium, plus they are individually tested to exceed their stated timings, which are decent in themselves for 2 x 2GB kits. Their cooling solution looks excellent, plus they are designed to fit as 4 x 2gb if you wish to go there.

Ahhhh Love that system... Mine is the silver model. The only thing they could have done better would have been to add an optional fan port and cover on the side down by the VC slots on the door and get rid of the perf metal grillsI replaced all their fans with fluid dynamic bearing low db units.. the Tj09 was a royal pain to replace the front fan and that could have been made better.. I did pull the perf metal grate out of the front/center fan port which also helps quite a bit.. wrote them about that.. perf metal is no good for airflow. Unfortunately you cant do that on the top fan ports or you lose the look.I also blocked the top-rear fan hole and added a 120mm intake just over the memory slots.Love the removable tray.. saves a lot of time

You could do like one of my buddies does...he goes and gambles on pull tabs, wins $250 (lucky), doesn't tell his "financial advisor" about it. :-saeRhettFS box: E8500 (@ 3.16 ghz), AC Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64ASX Client: AMD 3700+ (@ 2.6 ghz), 7800GT

I'm to the point where I don't buy anything without a removable tray, unless I'm building for someone else and they just insist on a certain case.I didn't know you were into case modding. I have not done anything to the case yet. I'll see how difficult it is to remove that grill on the inside fan. If it's not too much trouble I might do it.Playing with voltages, clock, etc. I am little perturbed by some of the Tj temps I'm seeing with this case and cooler. Maybe I am just spoiled by my 3700+, which even clocked out was one cool-running sucker.RhettFS box: E8500 (@ 3.16 ghz), AC Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64ASX Client: AMD 3700+ (@ 2.6 ghz), 7800GT
