I used the TrackIR in the v/c mode of the PMDG 737-700. This subdues the urges to spend thousands of dollars on turning my garage into a 737. The repaint of the PMDG to N720WN "Canyon Blue" was done by Cleveland Barnes (www.flightsim.com). Then theres Flightzone 1 (KPVD scenery), FS2CREW (CO-Pilot), FS-PAX (pasengers and flight attendents), A diferent sound set for the 737, the ATC is from ATC.net for KPVD. I usually fly online with VATSIM, but its not east to capture the whole audio thing on Fraps.
One way to speed up framerates is to use WideFS, and run flight sim supporting applications on another computer(ActiveSky FSCommander, ect.). I think the 10,000rpm Rapter drive, and the two 8800's help as well. Even then, I still turn off the aircraft shadows and some other things to get it to 40+fps.

LOL....I love it! I heard SWA doesnt have an auto-throttle in most of their birds.
So if I use the VNAV at low Alt., and it pushes the throttle to max econ and the nose beyond 30 degrees, is that unrealistic? hmmmm....in other words, Would the VNAV ever do that on a real 733, 5, or 7 (not just SWA birds)? Do I need to adjust Vert SPD until reaching cruse alt?
