Lagging could be a fragmentation issue.

 

Optimizing: With W7 you can't gain much with manual core assigning - W7 itself is just too good for that.

 

You could lower selected options like visibility range, cloud depiction.

Just be thankful your not running FSX.    :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 

Seriously though ... turn off ANY superfluous start-up programs, empty the temp folder,  clean out any 'junk' using CCleaner, or similar, clean and defragment RAM and Registry before loading any sim related programs. As mentioned above ... defragment your drive often, run Scan AFD regularly, keep FS9's cfg file clean as well as the scenery cfg. In other words do your house keeping.

 

When all else fails just enjoy your flight and the experience ... in real life pilots aren't concerned with fps neither should you.

The CPU listed by the OP didn't enlighten me as to what its clock speed might be. IMHO, if it's 3.0 Ghz or better, he should have few problems. I would, however, point out that he might still experience some comparatively lower frame-rates if and when flying in, over, or under any sort of heavy cloud cover. There may be FS9 users who have such high-powered systems that nothing FS9 can throw at them causes much if any degradation  in performance, but if so, though my system provides me with excellent performance otherwise, heavy cloud cover can still affect it.

Good observation there Robert. I guess we are all a little complacent ... we see i5-2500 and immediately deduce its the (overclocked) K version.
