What's The Problem With My Computer?

Hello everyone, it's yet another computer problem! I've been playing FSX since April 2008 and fallen in love with it, because of the addons! 

Last October, I decided to upgrade my desktop computer in order to play FSX more efficiently and have maximum graphic settings for WoW (which I has since stopped playing). This computer is great, it could hit 60 fps (maximum) in WoW but when it comes to FSX, it becomes temperamental (talk about a computer with PMS...).

My most recent problem is that it always gets very laggy and a major FPS drop when I use certain planes or in certain regions. Such as Wilco 737 PIC, PMDG 747 or in the USA. I can never go beyond 8 fps when using 737 PIC (I forgot what FPS I got using PMDG) and sometimes my PMDG panel screens will freeze up, according to PMDG ops they call it "memory starvation" as I was using Windows 32 bit?

- I use 2D cockpit view when flying
- ALL my scenery settings are set to 0 (except water at 1x)

Here are my computer specs.

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_rtm.090713-1255)
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHz (2 CPUs), ~3.0GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 3072MB RAM
Page File: 1093MB used, 5046MB available
Windows Dir: C:Windows
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
DX Setup Parameters: Not found
User DPI Setting: Using System DPI
System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent)
DWM DPI Scaling: Disabled
DxDiag Version: 6.01.7600.16385 32bit Unicode
Display: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250

Any help is deeply appreciated. If you need screenshots of my graphic settings in FSX, I'd most gladly provide it.


One way I will fly around the world!
