    What am I doing wrong?

    I don't know...I don't use the windowed mode at all. All I know is that if I set the DSR to 2.5 or 3x native, and I set FSX to that resolution- I have lower FPS...But if I then reduce the resolution in FSX to my monitors native resolution, I have very smooth, consistent FPS and performance... much better than if I don't use DSR at all and run
    native res. throughout

    When you get back to your native res then you actually deactivate DSR. DSR is ''on'' only if you have selected the respective resolution in FSX i.e. for 3x it should be 3325x1871. Although activated in Nvidia control panel it is actually ''off'' when you set 1920x1080.

    That's quite correct. I usually flip between native/non-DSR/windowed/1920x1200 to fullscreen/DSR/3325x1871 with no problem.

    Heywoood seemed to be saying that the 3xDSR setting could somehow still be active even when in 1920 resolution - unless I read the post all wrong (wouldn't be the first time, LOL!).

    well if that were true - then wouldn't the desktop resolution revert to non DSR?
    my understanding is that with the DSR on and the FSX resolution reduced, its a matter of scaling, that allows the GPU to render frames with reduced effort

    I viewed it - and thank you for the link.

    I have to stand by what I said before though - in my case..setting the Nvidia resolution multiplier to (2x) native - then setting the FSX resolution to my monitors real native of 1920x1080 gives me the best results.
    I have tried using the higher resolutions in FSX settings and just do not get the smoothness or rate of FPS that I do when running FSX at the lower number - but the image IS much better

    in other words - if I leave all alone and run my monitor at its default resolution of 1920x1080 AND set FSX at 1920x1080 I have an image that is less defined and FPS that are less consistent, than if I double the monitors native resolution with the Nvidia control panel but leave FSX at 1920x1080

    the only anomaly with this is that - on loading - the little loading bar is offset from the center of the screen and the mouse-look feature using the spacebar and mouse to pan the camera is also offset (no longer centered - but still functions with the exception that panning to the right of center is reduced) - but panning with the hat switch is unaffected...I do not use TrackIR
