Yes Abe,Monitor switching is one of the easiest things to do, and just connecting and booting up should do the trick. If you monitor comes with a driver-disk containing its color-profile install that too, but in most cases nowadays XP/Vista or other OS have already build in profiles.ps: you are still upgrading your GPU right?

Hello,My experience , running Nvidia, you need to control (adjust) your refresh rate, resolution, overclocking, AA, AF, ... in the Nvidia control panel for each monitor.Control (adjust?) your settings in FSX for the 3 monitors.Not that difficult..Do the same when changing the video driver.

True, but thats more related to tweaking AFTER.. regarding Abe's position now, is how to switch monitors. :)
