i have one been wanting to use two monitors. One for flight sim so i can fly in full window mode and one for my windows screen. Couple of questions do i need two gpus? I have one gtx 570 is that enough to handle that? if not should i upgrade? if i need to upgrade what should i upgrade to? Last one is there a good place to get directions on how to set that up the two monitors like i want them?
Thanks

What do you mean when you say you want one monitor for your windows screen? Do you mean for the airplane's front window view? Or do you mean Windows operating system?

 

I'm pretty sure GTX 570 can be used to drive two monitors. Your card has three options (two DVI connectors and one HMDI) for connecting to monitors.

 

There are videos on youtube describing how to setup multiple monitors.

, for example, shows one way to connect dual monitors for FSX, using Window's own settings. (The guide in the video shows how to display a gauge on a separate monitor from the main monitor. If you're trying to display the plane's front window view, you could move a Window containing the plane's front window view to the other monitor instead of the gauge used in the example in the video.)

Another way to do it is to use the NVidia control panel software that is available from NVidia and controls the video card's settings.
