Multi-screen configurations

Recommended Posts

I want to set up a new PC to drive, I think, 4 screens:- a 26" screen for cockpit and look ahead- two 19" screens for half-left and half-right views- a 19" screen for the overhead panelI am unclear what modern Intel GeForce cards will support 4 mixed-mode screens, if at all.Could someone advise please?

590 or any 2 cards.Or you could use 2 cards in sli for a vc that spans all 3 monitors & install a cheap gt520 to drive a 4th accessory monitor.

Thanks Ken!Does, say, a 26" monitor allow more 3D cockpit objects to be displayed from FSX than a 19" monitor, or is the same area just stretched to the wider screen?

Clarification;Any of the gtx4xx/5xx cards can do 2 monitors each, with or without sli enabled. I'm not sure about the earlier cards
