Anyone can run all their sliders to the far right.The question is: What frame rates are you happy with - 2 or 20 ?

I can just about. If I do away with the VC and just have the 2D panels onto a second monitor (much more realistic) then you are laughing. Check out the attached image below.

I can (okay, I am cheating a little, no bloom and water 2x low) although the frame rates are not great over Seattle. At 1280x1024 I get about 10 fps. At 3840x1024 it drops to 7 fps...Maybe an 8800GTX will make a difference.Edit: Should say this is with no texture tweaks.

Yes. I am achieving an acceptable 9 - 10fps (very little stuttering) at LHR and over London and 20 plus on leaving that area. This is at 1280 x 1024. A fraction more and less stuttering at 1024 x 768.Global texture very highAircraft Ultra HighScenery Ultra HighWeather Ultra HighAI Civil and GA at 100 % Others at 25%Intel Core Due Extreme X68004.0GB DDR2 533mhz320GB IDE 16MB bufferMSI Nvidia 8800GTSey question for me is will Vista and DX10 make a significant improvement

>Yes. I am achieving an acceptable 9 - 10fpsHe He, The last time I actually "played" (for hours on end) a game that had frame rates like that was:Falcon on my evil clone 386 (or maybe it was the 286 can't remember). Heck I even had a math coprocessor on it too .. The "guns in" dogfights were a real b*tch, but go easy on the Gravis 4 button "deluxe" joystick and you'd be okay...But you lived with it - tweak the config/autoexec for a few more k and what them graphics fly ! Ahh, them were the days. While I'm thinking of it, I think I just about have as much coin into this rig as that one cost me ...Regards'Garett
