    Computer setup for Simulator

    Hello;

    Just wondering if anyone can check my proposed PC layout and point out any mistakes or options. I intend to use an add-on aircraft for my sim platform and FS Panel Studio for my instrument clusters.

    As far as networking the PC's...would a crossover cable network/junction suffice....or is it better to use an ethernet connection over a network?

    It looks good to me.
    I would use the fastest and most flexible network possible.
    Not the direct crossovers
    Use a Gigabit switch.

    Your PC2 and PC4 are going to be struggling pretty bad to display 2 outside views at the same time. It is very possible the way you have it set up to start with but you will need to do some testing with WideView to see if you think it will work for you.
