I suggest you check the following link- Coastie is pretty thorough with his advice on settings for ATI cards. He's helped me a lot.
For further discussion on this i suggest you also check the 'Community Help' forum.

With regards to your system, it looks like it should be able to run pretty close to everything to the max!
Can i have it??? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

been playing with mine tonight. amd3700, 2gig, evga 7800gtx. my goal is for perfect landscape. been testing only on the pacific islands map(not sure if different maps effect fps or not).

at 1600x1200x32 i get what i guess is a micro stutter every 2 seconds. only happens over land and fps=30. 1152x864x32 is highest i get with no stutter. have not tested in combat yet. tried v sync on/off and different things with no visual results.

sim looks good at this res with details maxed.

edit: now i get stutter at 1152x864. dropped to 1024x768 no stutter. its every 1 second over trees. kind of like a slideshow where the ground catches up. flight is unhindered and fps=40 or greater...weird. no issues in excellent mode.

edit: after some more confusion i found having v sync off and triple buffering off helps. fps went up and the "row boat" effect has mostly dissapeared even in 1600x1200. crazy all these graphic settings.

and after all the misery, i discover that i can now land on a runway. this J8A is a cool litle plane.

I would suggest posting in Community Help, and put in your dxdiag for the expterten to take a look at. It's a nice system, but the X300 is not what I would call a "high end" card. You could probably run decent settings on Excellent, but I wouldn't guarantee great performance on Perfect.
