How to set up outside view with panels on sub monitors?

Recommended Posts

I have my rig set up with 2 EVGA Nvidea 780s (3MB cards) running in SLI. Rig has 5 monitors, 3 x Asus 24 inch for the out-the-cockpit-window view, and two 18" running for the panels. I am trying to get the set up to look similar to a couple of rigs I saw on a multiple monitor thread. How do I configure the out-the-window view? When I try to undock screens, and drag to the monitors, I can't seem to get FSX to permit me to place the instrument panels in the 4th and 5th monitors.


The idea I am shooting for


That PMDG MD11 is exactly what I am aiming for on my rig. I don't need the 6th monitor and the overhead ... yet :-)


I am trying to set up the three 24" set up in Surround, but FSX jams up as soon as it loads the textures. I get flashing blank screens, and have to end up re-booting the entire system. Take it out of surround, and FSX is happy as can be.  Anyone with any idea what I am doing wrong with surround, and how to configure the outside view on the three screens so I get no panels in it, etc?

JT, you seem to breaking nVidia's laws of physics.

The maximum monitors you can have with Surround enabled is supposed to be 4, ie 3+1.


In the forum post you link to, that guy is using a Matrox TH2Go for his three centre screens.
