i had just heard of a utility for FSX called FSPS FSX Booster, but they want $30 for it and that is something i cannot afford at this time.

so i went around looking for software that can enhance gaming experience and came across AMD Fusion Utility for Desktops:

this is a free program that you can use to load profiles for power and program settings.
this utility will also analyze how much you can overclock your CPU before you get a BSOD or other errors. my processor is 3.0gz per core, this program was able to safely allow me to increase this to 3.2ghz.

i have noticed a slight fps increase using the gaming profile and overclock setting.

i have been able to increase autogen and scenery to full and get about 25-30 at airports(without addon scenery) fps which if i were not using this program, it would be 12-20 fps, i find this acceptable for my enjoyment of FSX

this program allows you to switch between profiles from the system tray.

i am still learning how to use this program, so i will be trying it again later tonight.

this utility is for AMD processors only

What is overclocking? I saw Mark mention it in his post regarding his nifty new computer and don't know anything about it. That picture is crisp, I take it has something to do with overclocking?

overclocking is trying to get more out of your components, mostly CPU and/or video card for performance, it has its risks such as hardware failure, and in most cases, will void warranties. that image is not as crisp as it could be, i had to reduce the file size down a bit so i dont go over the bandwidth my image host allows me.
