Response to the framerate questions
Iíve seen so many questions regarding frame rates that I decided to post what I do regarding this issue. Some may disagree and some may have better ideas. Please feel free to post your responses.
I run with the framerate counter on must of the time because Iím the kind of person who is never satisfied with what I have and Iím always trying to make improvements on everything.
The best thing is a faster processor. You can over clock but this can become a nightmare.
Then top of the line graphic cards, but these things will cost a lot of money.
The next option is as follows.

These textures have increased my FPS by over 8fps
From his point you will just need to play around with your sliders. I have never heard of anyone who can run FSX with all sliders to the right and still have fps above 21.
I have found that the real killers of fps are.
1, Ground traffic
2, AI traffic
4, Light Bloom and Advanced Animation
Try adjusting these sliders down
I run with no ground traffic, My AI is at 50% and my weather is at medium high. My scenery and auto-gen are set to dense, Special affects are at medium. I turn off light bloom and advanced animation, I turn frame rates to unlimited. I run at about 16fps in the cities and about 50fps in the rural areas.
