Entire GPU

I recently downloaded Flight Simulator X Deluxe, and When I ran a gadget on my desktop, it wasn't using the full GPU. What I want to know what to do is how to make the game utilize my entire GPU.

Dell XPS 15 (laptop)
640 GB HDD
2 GB Graphics (Nvidia GeForce GT 435M)
Intel i7 4-core 8-thread 1.73 GHz - 2.93 GHz

So i assume you have maxed out in game video options( 1920x1200x32, full AA, full AF, Ultra Quality). If not i would start by doing that.

Remember laptop GPUs are a 3rd of the original GPU or is it half
and all depends on what games are being played on it?
for a good guess id say you can run Crysis at maxed setting with NoAA at around the 30-40fps 1920x1080
and crysis 2 around the High/gamer/extreme mark at 1280x70/1920x1080 depending on the level it sets at!

My laptop has a Geforce 9500GS and runs crysis at medium/High
Geforce GT435M

GPU Engine Specs:
CUDA Cores 96
Processor Clock (MHz) 1300 MHz
Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec) 7.8
Memory Specs:
Memory Clock (MHz) 800
Standard Memory Config DDR3
Memory Interface Width 128-bit
Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) 25.6

Exactly, this is FSX we are talking about here. casi179 should have no problem running it maxed out.

I have it on highest resolution (1366x768) but when I try and add trees houses ect. the framerate freezes up. And when I downloaded the game I said the same thing, that it's just flight simulator. :-/
