This may fix your problem. It has fixed mine. Use Nhancer to set your GPU settings. Make sure both global and profile settings are EXACTLY the same. In the area of Multi Core support select single core even if you have a dual core. If your not familiar with Nhancer let me know and I will dig up a post telling you what settings to use.

I've found that using the keyboard rather than the mouse to access the menu system will delay crashing the sim indefinitely. After you open the menu with the Alt key you navigate with the direction keys and hit Enter to execute your selection.Mike.

>Hello everyone>>I have searched the forum for a fix for the menu crashing in>full screen.Search for "OOM Error" (without the quotes). You'll get a belly full of information on how to set your /3GB userva=2065 switch, which should help a lot.The rest will involve finding the driver for your 8800 that work best for your system.

Jerry, what did you upgrade from. I am in the process of deciding what I want to put in my new system and what new things has the upgrade allowed you to do as far as FSX.
