In this article I take a look at the relative performance differences between the Nvidia 670 FTW, 780 SuperClock and the 780 ti as it pertains to Flight Simulator X (FSX).  I'll also include some non-fsx benchmarks for comparing how these three cards stack up.  This project began as an attempt to get a boost in performance in FSX from my original card which was the 670.  In the end I settled on the 780ti.

I have a TrackIR device which I use primarily with Flight Simulator X, and ran into an issue out of the blue.  Nothing was changed on my system and it was running fine previously, using version 5.1 of the software.  Suddenly when TrackIR would load it would simply say "error" in a dialogue box and then close.  To get past this error I discovered that the checkbox under OpenGL Settings called "Triple Buffering" was causing the issue.  Simply un-checking the box has made the error go away. 

Thus far, even at this writing, version 5.2 of their software has not fixed this glitch.  This was with my ATI 5850 card combined with Windows 8 x64 RTM (and the latest Windows updates).
