    I also have Gigabyte's 480GTX but Win7 64bit. I had some different problems with FSX, but after installed MSI Afterburner to control fan speed i can fly normaly.

    Your problem, maybe has to do with your power supply. How many watt is it? I think that GTX480, needs at least 600watt PSU. Mine is an Enermax 1050watt.
    Also you have to take care how to distrubute the power from the rails to the system.

    Good luck

    Thanks mate.
    My psu is an 850 watt with four rails.

    Just doing a full os re install now.

    I will download afterburner too. When the card does work it positively flies at 30-50 frames with everything nearly up to max. Especially when I oc to 3.8

    I'll let you know how I go.

    Just let your system work without problems, ensure that everything is ok and then overclock it. Otherwise you don't know where is the problem.
