FSX only uses one core for its main process. All teh othe cores do is load textures which is why they sxometimes stop.just fly teh plnae the ywill move when more teraain is loaded. FSX is NOT a multicore programme.

FSX is an old program, it doesn't do multi-core very well, it does some multithreading though. What you need is a cpu with a high IPC count (Instructions Per Clock-cycle) and Intel is the best for that. Even 90€ dual-core pentium will beat almost anything AMD has in FSX, in newer games not so much. Newer games are optimized for multi-core cpu's and this is where you get the best bang for the buck with AMD imo. I had, up until recently, an overclocked FX-6300@4,3GHz and it was a good cpu for everything EXCEPT fsx, I got stutters no matter what tweaks and settings I used. Recently I built a new PC with a Haswell i7 4770 cpu and it runs fsx like a dream. So, I bet even an Haswell i3 will be a major step up from a FX-4100.
