It will help matters if you give more info on your computer.  CPU type and speed, graphics card, maybe even the amount and type of RAM.  I see your subject title was edited!  Be careful of your wording,context and any expletives.  FSX-SE should have come with most of the things needed for the FSX.cfg except for HIGHMEMFIX=1.  You may need to adjust the Settings sliders to help with FPS.

FSX-SE has HIGHMEMFIX=1 built into it by default. As well as it automatically calculates the proper affinity mask and increased buffer pool size as long as vsync is disabled. I think you might need to add in the line if you use VSync (which is pretty much mandatory, IMO).

[BufferPools]

PoolSize=0

What cooling do you have, after market then try OC your CPU to above 3.5 or higher, use NVidia inspector set up in the right way and keep your sliders down;

water at 2x low ( this one hits hard on med or high) scenery complexity at normal or max dense, autogen at normal, cloud draw distance not to high max cloud cover at medium, AI traffic at max 20%, no car traffic or leisure boat traffic ( hit hard to ), ferries don't matter since there are not to many in FSX.

Try all that and see where you get.

In addition I would kill Light Bloom and Lens Flare.  Scenery Complexity maxed, otherwise airport buildings go missing.

Close any programs running in the background.

 

If I run stock aircraft I get ~50 fps.

When I run a Carenado aircraft I get fluctuating fps from 10-30.

Also very dependent upon what is being rendered (are you close to the ground?). Once I reach cruising altitude all that is being drawn is the cockpit and some sky.

You're getting some very good advice. I would also suggest you look on the right side of your screen when you are at Forums main page. There are some valuable guides listed that might also help.
