When I'm on the ground at any airport (payware or default), in the distance the runway, buildings, ground appear to be moving. Any ideas?

By moving do you mean flickering?   If so, sounds like you have Z-Fighting going on.   There is a way to reduce this effect but I'll need to research it again.. it's been a while.

Could just be the Anisotropic Filtering - with your card you ought to be able to run 16x with no appreciable loss of performance. Have you made any manual changes to the Prepar3D.cfg ?

Might be worth just showing the full document contents, just in case.

I get flickering, but very minimal and that is usually if I am panning around inside the VC which I found to be an indication of scenery load.  I take that with a grain of salt as long as P3D is stable. :)

I've changed to 16X anisotropic with no appreciable change in the flickering.
