Running XP Home 32 Bit, ASUS M3N78 PRO Mother Board with CPU socket AM2/AM2+, AMD 9500 Phenom Quad core 2.2 GHz processor, Nvidia Ge Force GTX 260 OC 896 MB GDDR3 graphic card, 3 1/4 GB RAM ( Max for XP 32 bit ) SP3 and DirectX 9c.
I can hardly run FSX on default settings ( Scenery tears it up ), I've Frames Per second set for 25 and most of the time it keeps up with the 25 FPS until a large airport or a large city then it's 10 down to a 6. I've been running "Airlines at 49% and GA's at 100% ( have about 248 WOAI pkgs. installed world wide so far ) I would like to build up airlines up to 100% and up the scenery some but My processor is running out of gas and huffs and puffs sometimes.
I do not want Vista nor Win7 as XP ( if it's built up right on your computer ) will get the job done on 99% of Sims/Games out today and at DirectX 9c. DirectX 10 and 11 are not meant for FSX. Also XP doesn't give as much static as Vista or Win7.
According to the specs on the FSX Gold Edition box Just require a single 2.0GHz or higher processor. Does this mean I've three cores NOT working?
Somewhere I've read that there is a fix to make all the cores of the processor work and handling scenery well. Is this true? and if so where do I look ?
Thanks in advance.
