Two problems off the bat. Your CPU clock speed is too low, you'll get best results with planes like the NGX and FTX running 4ghz or better.Your second problem is the SLI since FSX doesn't take advantage of that and often can hurt performance unless your running multiple monitors or super high resolutions.Have you tried tuning using NickN's setup guide over at the GEX forum at simforums.com or Bojotes auto cfg tweaker?
