Go with the latest drivers on the nvidia site. (275.XX)They will give you the option of a clean install - which is what you want.No need to uninstall first.Then use nvidia inspector to set AA, AF etc..

So far there's nothing not to like. To be honest, I've only spent about fifteen-minutes with it in FSX. By the time I loaded up FSX and got my ORBX scenery in, I had to shut off the machine because She was going to bed. (My rig is in the bedroom, how stupid is that?)Anyway, during those fifteen-minutes of flying, Friday Harbour looked rich and delicious at 50+FPS with the sliders maxed. Nice colours, a darker more realistic pallete. It looked... rich. And fast!I have about 45 minutes before I leave for work and I'm going to fry up the Nvidia Inspector and see what things look like. I'll let you know.

OK! Start setting up your rig in the basement... that is where mine is <_<and... 8XSQ AA and 16X AF looks fabulous along with lod_radius=5.5 in the fsx.cfg file..
