I should not have to, I should have a DX10.1 card, or so I was told.

I was just confused by the message that popped up.

Anyway, just removing FSX, prior to reinstalling, stage by stage.

I should really be doing some flying, the old machine is still operational with FS9 and FSX.

Others will know better than I but I thought FSX didn't yet take
advantage of DX10. When it does, then we'd all need to change our
graphics cards.....

Include me out!

That does not make any difference Gerry, as I said, I will have to start
back at the beginning again and test each stage.

I may have done something wrong, noticed that FSX installed DX 9.0c,
thought I should be running DX10.

First step, quite painless, is just to set framerate at Unlimited. In
many cases that produces a dramatic increase.

Looks good Mike

I have just loaded up my new machine, and like an idiot, loaded up FSX +
SP1 + SP2. straight away.

Current frame rates are max 10, yes 10 frames. For a  4 core 2.83
machine with a 9800gtx card!!!

I am going to uninstall, then reinstall and test at each stage, but I
think my mistake was in loading SP2. I am sure that the frame rates
plummeted then.

Mind you, moving the main sliders up or down, makes no difference to the
frame rates, even with AG on or off.

I think that I will have to get some tweaks for this setup, the FRs
should be thro the roof, my old machine is at least 3 times faster!!

Back to the drawing board

bones -

Good session tonight, thanks!  Sorry that I missed John Hill, I've not
chatted to him for ages.

This is the screenie that I took whilst we were talking after I had
shut
down:

Note the frame rate.

I've completely refurbished two old P4 pc's that I have had for
years and
have also rebuilt another old P4 that I was recently given using bits
sourced from eBay (at minimum cost*). All these machines are now fully
networked together and I've exploited my new-found super-computing
power as
I described during our chat.  By distributing all the various add-on
programs that I use to complement my 'flying' over four of these
machines, I
have dramatically improved the whole FSX/Vista/Horizon experience to an
extent that I would not have believed possible even two months ago!
Reducing the 'load' on the 'flying' machine is a definite plus.

It bodes well for the future.
