    Flight Simulator X Anti-aliasing modes example 8X or 8X CSAA.


    Witch is better as far as quality of images rendering (scenery, aircraft, air traffic, ect) while the quality is at it's best with less framerate hit (performance)? One more thing in my control panel (I have a Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 1024 MB card) I have CSAA and Q choices ei: Q CSAA. Trying to improve image quality with minimal framerate hits while using the highest settings (Scenery extremely dense, ect.) Any advice

    CSAA will look better but it will drop your performance significantly. I would not reccomend it for your GPU but if you want you can use it if you are willing to sacrifice fps.

    Recommendations for my system specs for FSX.


    What would you recommend I set my graphics to to get the best performance without sacrificing image quality? I'm into realism as far as scenery, weather, ect.

    I'll just stick to 8x MSAA if I were you as your graphics card will have to struggle running FSX with CSAA enabled.

    My options i.e. are 8X or 8X CSAA Is 2X, 4X, 8X, MSAA by default? The CSAA settings are 8XCSAA, 16XQCSAA, 32XCSAA The screens here are 1 Hong Kong at night by Fly Tampa (which are very smooth even with AI traffic, maxed sliders) but 2 New York City is a real FPS hit depending on view and aircraft flown. (note the 12 FPS in the top right corner, probably due to viewing the helicopter from spot view, FPS is worse when in the cockpit. My guess is a lot of polygons went into the design of this add on, Manhattan X by Aerosoft. A bit choppy but still phenomenal. One more thing this was taken using a GeForce 430GT. Now I have a GeForce GTX 650. Remember blue side up guys

    650 would be way better. Just give it a try to check the fps.
