    Monitor sizes/types?

    Hi Folks.

    I want to increase my instrument viewing capability (more monitors). I understand that 19" monitors are typicaly masked to show two seperate displays. What size and type of monitor can be used? I have a few crt types, but would appreciate some advice. I am running on one powerful computer, and don't use PM - I make my own gauges with FS Panel Studio.

    Thanks

    Hi Tony,

    I don't think there is a limit to monitor size or type. The only limit will be the power of the PC running it all and the number of video outputs. I'm running 6 off my single PC using 2 video cards and a TH2GO, but with a not so powerful computer and it grinds in complex scenery. 3 are 17" CRT's and 3 are 17" LCD's, however I will eventually replace the 3 CRT's with 3 x 22" widescreen LCD's for more effective outside view.

    I am currently designing a panel layout in FS Panel Studio (what a great program) for a customers sim using a 19" widescreen LCD for main panel view. No problems!

    Size is pretty much whatever you need or what will fit.

    I have a 17" widescreen now, and am still looking for a 12.1" widescreen for engine instruments.
