I am currently using an Intel E5700 with a G41MT-S2P board. I bought the kit new of Ebay and its clocked to 4GHZ. My GPU is a GTX 570 and i power 2 24" monitors in VC view. Over the past while ive noticed my machine struggling a bit in dense airports such as FSdreamteam or Simmer sky addons. I use FS9 with a sliders maxed and have REX,GE PRO,TOPCAT and Radar contact all running as well. The ac i use are PMDG and others like it. The FPS is locked at 24 and i do get this but as ive said in airports it can drop to 10FPS.
My question is, am i asking to much from my machine and what will get my FPS back up to a 24 stable. One thing to note is when i use 1 monitor i get 24 but im so used to a side view id find it very hard not to use it.
This is a bit of a kick in the teeth for me as ive spent ages getting it just the way i want it, but this FPS issue is bugging me and i have to sort it.
ALL advice is welcome!!!!
Ok so ive been messing about with settings etc. I can max the lot and have AA set to 32, heavey weather and 100% traffic (using WOAI). If i use one monitor i get smooth FPS all the way, i locked it at 30 though. So my system can run everything nice and slick but not 2 monitors. What do i do in order to run 2 monitors, the answer i slowly coming to is.............Stop being an ass Alan and use one monitor
What do you think
