Flight Simulator X DX10 Issues

Hi, I am having graphical issues with FSX when playing in DX10 mode, some effects doesn't appear and there are some glitches.

I have a GeForce GTX 260, with the last update, so if someone is having the same issue or knows any solution, please let me know.

Have you tried running it with Admin rights, or have you tried running this with XP compatibility? Sometimes this fixes problems.

Unfortunately neither solves the problem.

I made some searches and it seems it is a problem with some video cards...
Why with just a GTX 260?!

The sound card "Audigy 2" had the same problem with Nascar Season 2003. It would crash because the game didn't agree with the sound card. I took out the card and the game ran okie dokie. Some games just don't like some cards, despite it being an earlier driver version or later.

I think it has not to do with drivers, since everything is updated. So I will have to change my video card...

Having the latest drivers doesn't automatically mean everything will work. Even with the latest drivers, games can have problems with the card. Try using an earlier driver version. It might help.
