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.

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.

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.
