Extreme Lag with 3 monitors!!

Recommended Posts

Good day all!

Recently (the past 2 months), i've been having a lot of problems with my 3 screen setup. I currently have a GTX770. During a flight (on the ground or in the air) my GPU usage sometimes gets to 100%, when this happens, i get 2 fps in the sim. Today i was experimenting on how to fix it, and found that by moving the sim to 1 monitor fixed the issue. The Usage and fps was fixed. 2 monitors was also fine, it was only at 3 that it went to sh*te. So, my question is, do i upgrade my GPU to a GTX1070 (my worry is that it won't actually fix the issue) or do i get rid of the 3 screen setup and get one big curved monitor.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Adrian

1070 will run three 1080p monitors quite well or a single 4k very nicely.  If you can afford it, get a 1070 that is watercooled. Recommend a single 4k-amazing clarity. With these 2 pieces of hardware you'll be able to upgrade to P3d whenever you want to.

Excellent, i'll do some more research on GPU's. I'll probably never upgrade to P3D if i'm honest, as i've put too much money into FSX at this time. Thanks for your help!
