Hello everyone, I have a problem with my card when playing FLIGHT SIMULATOR 2004 My video card is a newly bought (3 weeks old) SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON X800GT, AGP, 256 RAM with a bios information of A26126.001. I have the ATI CATALYST version 5.12 running on default options. Directx version is 9.0 and sapphire trixx overclocking tool is running on standard settings (vpu clock – 472.50, mem clock – 492.75, fan speed is 67% and board temp is average 45 o C). I have a screen resolution (desktop) of 1024x768 pixels, on a Philips 107E5, 17’’ standard monitor on 85 hz refresh rate. My pc is an AMD ATHLON XP, 1,25 GHz, 1.24 GB of RAM (2x512) which runs on Windows Xp Professional with windows service pack version 2. In the bios, my advanced chipset setup features are set as follows: FSB Freq: 100mhz Memory timings: T(RAS) – 5 T(RCD) – 3 T(RP) -- 3 Cas latensy – 2.5 AGP aperture size 64mb AGP freq – auto My flight simulator runs on a 111bg hard disc, with 20 gbs free disc space and with the following setup, as far as display properties are concerned: 1024x768x32 without antialiasing. Trilinear filtering, and on general graphics settings set on medium to high. Frame rate is set on unlimited. My pc is generally well-optimized as I frequently run apps like ad aware, tune up utilities, system cleaner and all. No other software or spyware is running or active when I play fs2004, checked that. Problem is that when the scenery has a lot of details (like buildings) and clouds on the sky, frame rate drops significantly and to me – illogically. What’s happening? I am desperate here, I spent 200 euros on this thing (about 250 us dollars) and i expected it to run smoothly without frame rate drops and even on higher resolutions….am I expecting too much off my card or is something going wrong here indeed? Thanks a lot, your help is greatly appreciated.
