What rig do you recommend for 5 projectors + 1 monitor

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I only own FSX right now and was in the process of doing this setup:

 

- 5 projectors for scenery (180 degree view, 52 inch screens)

- 1 screen for gauges

 

running on these computers:

 

-Comp 1 video output 1 = Front left, Front & Front right projectors with Triplehead2go

-Comp 1 video output 2 = gauges

 

-Comp 2 video outputs 1 & 2 = Left & right views, using WideView

 

 

Now I am thinking of using Prepar3d instead but am wondering if I should use the same hardware setup, or get an Eyefinity video card.

 

What do you guys recommend?

I attached pics of early stages of my setup where only 3 of the 5 screens were setup.

 

Thanks!

 

Marc

wow, your setup is certainly more than being just nice... must be breathtaking.

 

Just curious, when you say 52 in screens you mean you have 5 x 52 inch screens for form an 180 degree view? Again, must be so nice.

Yes, each screen is 4:3 ratio, 42 inch wide by 31.5 inch high, giving 52.5 inch screens...

I can't wait to experience it with all 5 screens setup... just the 3 was already amazing.

No but I already own my 5 projectors so that's no help to me...

 

I just want to know if I should use an eyefinity to operate all projectors from 1 computer or use 2 computers over LAN

A pair of GTX780 in SLI would come very close to what you want. That should give you eight video outputs.
