Does anybody know any good reading material or starting points on the most effective way to utilize this monitor? While I didn't get it just for P3D, I would like to try and take advantage of it, if possible. I would hate to make the default 165hz go down to either 30hz or 60hz, I could go for either 120hz or even 144hz, just not to sure the best way to do that, in conjunction with adjusting P3D or NI or NCP settings.

quite simply, you'll never even get close to utilizing a monitor with that high refresh rate. I have 100hz 34inch Asus monitor and never even considered trying to get any more than a stable 30fps out of it for flightsiming. And even if we could get 60+fps on flightsim it wouldn't really make much difference
