Driving 5+ monitors on the same rig

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I'm trying to find out how to drive 5 or more monitors on the same PC. (I'm building a home cockpit)  I'll be getting some type of AMD ATI card in the near future. (Can't use NVidia due to another sim that I use)

 

It's obvious that I would need multiple cards to do this. But is there some certain configuration that needs to be implemented? Or do I simply add two cards which would give me 8 ports?

 

I currently have an ATI HD 78xx series card already that uses 4 ports. I'd like to be able to throw another GPU - a 980 Ti say - and use the new card to drive two monitors that would use the 3D views and the HD 78xx providing the instrumentation views. 

 

Possible?

 

This will be on a rig with Windows 7 x64

 

I appreciate your feedback about this.

 

Thanks,

 

-Matt

Thanks for the input. I meant to add that I'd be getting a AMD ATI R9 390 not the NVidia GTX. Looking at your page I don't see how you're driving 7 monitors with one card. Unless I missed something.

I am using 2 cards, a GTX780 and a very cheap GT630 (50USD) together with a TH2GO.

If you look at the sideshow on the page

I copied in my last response, you will see how

Ah yes, I missed that. I was expecting the same type of card. Ok, so you have two different cards. That's good. I'll keep my HD 78xx with the 390. I'm hoping to get better performance with multiple 3D window views. I can't use the H2GO series since I only have 36 inch wide set up. (It's under the stairs)

 

I purchased the 390 today along with a new 1000w PS. The 600w PS just won't cut it. I'm also going to test a 7" LCD touchscreen with FSFK ACARS and the FSMap inflight moving map. I'm hoping it'll be sharp enough to look good.

 

That's a very nice pit you have BTW. Something to be jealous about. :)
