Multi Monitors Please Help
I hope someone can point me in the right direction. I have just discovered multi monitors on FSX. I want to setup 2 19” LCD one with the left view out of the aircraft and one with the right view. Of course I want everything to line up correctly. For my third monitor and second computer I want to use a 19” LCD widescreen with Wideview and place my instruments on it. Should be easy but I have been able to do it.

This would be possible, but in my experience, 2 monitors for the outside view are no so nice. That is because when you are lined up on the runway it is split right in the middle. Therefore an odd number of monitors are better.
This can be done by using a pc with 2 graphic cards with one card that has at least 2 outputs.Thus allowing 3 monitors to be used. (See this post: http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/showthread.php?t=15342)
Then there is the Matrox TrippleHead2Go option. You have cable connected to the TH2G box and 3 monitors plugged into the TH2G box. A lot has been discussed so a search on this forum will result in many answers around this topic.
Wideview will work great for the other PC for your instruments. Remember that with Wideview you need an additional licensed FSX installation on that PC.Fritz -> Helicopter Cockpit Builder
