    if your set on building a large ship in creative then get SEToolbox and remove every object in the world including asteroids except your ship.
    Make sure you backup your save 1st in case you delete rotor parts.

    Might save you some $$

    i would think its your graphics card. (the game is not optimised so it could just be bad code) That processor is Literally double what I have and running at the same speed. your graphics card though is basically double the power of mine but Radon not NVidia. (cost me £40). My GPU is sat on 100% always in this game and my CPU is 50-70%.
    a ship with more than a few lights will kill my fps to under 15 easily. LIGHTS are not good for my card MUCH worse than a big ship.

    Install GPU Temp. its a free program it will tell you how hard your Graphics card is working and you can always check task manager to see you CPU activity

    Also the Debug stats give no information as to weather its the CPU or GPU that is bottlenecking

    Whats your motherboard ? And whats its bus speeds ? Motherboards are so much more important than people realize. If its slow, every cool part in your pc is slowed down, and what a waste of cash that is.

    That is a really weak graphics card when you compare it to the rest of your system, I'd invest in a much nicer card, and you should see some of your problems go away. But remember that this game is not optimised yet, so there will be some performance increases coming in the way of patches in the future.
