Ultrawide or 4k monitor for fsx

Recommended Posts

I am running  FSX Steam with 7700k with a 1070TI and need monitor upgrade advice.  I Would like single monitor 34 inch or bigger as main display of pmdg 777 cockpit build to mount on wall behind the MIP (that is full size 1580mm long) without loosing FPS or high detail and smoothness. Currently running on asus 27 inch 2560x1440 and looks / runs great but now want to change to a bigger screen for a proper cockpit build.

Have looked at LG 34 inch LG 34UC80-B but don't know if a 4k monitor would be better. What would be the biggest and best fit for the project without taking a performance hit with the current pc.

Any suggestions and links to suitable monitors with advice would be appreciated

I would get a good 4K TV as the new monitor + DisplayFushion.

With that combination you can always set up your TV as 4 x 1920x1080 screens, 2 x 3840x1080 screens, 1 x 3840x2160 or even 1 x 2560x1440.

It can't be that much better, at least for flightsim programs that do not need a high refresh rate.

Here is the screens I have on my 4k, easy to change with hotkeys

Typically I would recommend the 38" as the 34" is a little too small. But considering you are placing the display behind your instruments panel I would have to suggest a larger screen. I from time to time use my Sony 4k HDR 55" and it would I think be perfect for your setup. Just make sure you have a strong video card to push that many pixels. Your 4gig of vram will not be enough. I run a RTX2080 and can max out the video ram.
