Hi there, I am new to X-Plane 10 and have been having trouble with my FPS dropping, and also noticing a flickering of scenery in the distance. If anyone can weigh in and give me some feedback, I'd greatly appreciate it. Below I will attach my computer settings, screenshot of my rendering settings, plug-ins/scenery and a video of the flickering. Thanks guys!

In general, a given rendering setting in X-Plane will impact *either* the CPU or the GPU (i.e., the graphics card). Your overall frame rate will be limited by whichever of those two is most heavily loaded.
