I have the 3 x 24" Dell with 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz

But then I built all this about 8 years ago. (a one-time investment that has more than paid off for me)

If I were to start today, I'll go for the biggest three monitors with the highest resolution possible. But you also need to physically mount all three and would need a nice 3 Monitor mounting hardware etc.

thanks for the advice But today what parameters should I follow to choose the monitor other than the 4k?

I think you'd be mad now to not go for a large TV if size/immersion is what you're after.. running 3 monitors with maxed out settings in P3D v4 will crush your system, whereas a larger single monitor/TV setup will ease the pain for your CPU/GPU and realise a much much nicer overall experience.. Look for something that'll handle 30hz too if you can.

In a real jet you always have a window bar in the middle.

Buy 2 ultrawide monitors and position yourself a little left from the middle.

That is the exact size Ive been waiting for. Current ultrawides are just too dang small at 36". So now I gotta wait another 2 years to afford it.

3 monitors. I'm running 3x27" LG IPS monitors with one 1070 and get smooth and decent fps on 5760x1080 resolution.

Nice setup. Are you running this in nvidia surround, group view or 3 x windows?

I guess each of your cards runs each monitor?

thanks

Yes SLI surround a monitor per card, the other monitors runs on different network PC, chaseplane is your friend to adjust the zoom/position. I strongly  advise not to use  TVs,

TVs are not monitors pixel density, color RR is just a few things to consider.

I understand that the 3 monitors are better But what? 27 "or 34" What characteristics should I have? I would also use them for driving simulator

 

edit:

 

I would have found this offer of 3 asus monitors as I am?

Asus VE276Q   -2-

Asus VE278N   -1-

Don't use 3 x 34" ultrawide it looks ridiculous, max AR 16.10. I would look into 30/32" 16.9/10 displays, the resolution is also a good thing to consider I use 3 x 30" each display as a res 2560x1600  I believe you could run that in a single card like 1080ti  but don't expect 80/100 FPS I get 20/30 on my system.

So in the end with a 1080ti and 3 monitors 16/9 I did not over 30fps with the various addon pay?!

With so many variables it is hard to give a definite answer If you look my signature you can see System I  have almost 8000  x 1600 res with  3 x Titans X  Sim max I get 20/30 FPS

now if I drop to 1 monitor (2560 x 1600)  it goes to 80/100 FPS, the new 1080ti  which I don't have is pretty powerful and has plenty of memory but not powerful enough to run that kind of res @ 80/100.  My guess if you get 3 x 1920x1080 monitors you would get decent FPS.

I am evaluating these 2 solutions 24 "or 27"

24" is too small...

It's okay 27 " But should the monitors for flight simulators have special features?

In the end I think of taking this Think it's worth a 3-monitor station

AOC AG271QG 27"
