    How far can I go with 1 PC and 6 screens ?

    I have 1 PC connected with dual TripleHead2Go and 6 monitors...

    see pics below..





    Let's suppose that I want to go to the next level and start from full MIP with MCP & twin EFIS setup. Can I do that with my already existing equipment ? Has anyone done this before ? How could this be achieved ?

    If the answer is yes can I proceed with dual CDUs, dual 737ng yokes & throtle and possibly an overhead ?

    Please feel free to laugh as loud as you want

    I am guesting that this is a novice-dummy-stupid question,

    Well the good thing is that you already have all this hardware hooked up so if you are happy with the FPS you are getting then I don't see then need add more PC's. If your computer is struggling then you can look into wideview and other networked systems.

    I'm running 6 monitors in one PC too and I'm happy with the results.
    Level-D 767 + Lekseecon + Opencockpits harwdware. My average is 25-40 FPS. 3 monitors for outside view, 2 for instruments and 1 for CDU. Using FSX

    Thanks,

    I am happy with my setup. Indeed 6 monitors and dual Thead2GO runs without any problems for months !!!

    Given that I was wondering if I could keep 3 screens for outside view (maybe upgrade to 3 x 24'' TFT ) and my overhead screen (maybe upgrade to a touch screen ) as now.

    That makes us 4 screens, and leaves us 2 screens to use. One for the Captain's side MIP, and one for the Center MIP. The First officers MIP will have another screen bridged with Captain's screen.

    This is ok up to now for me...

    I need dual yokes, dual CDUs, throtle, and all the rest of the MIP hardware... All that can be hooked up in the same PC ? Would I need a second one for that ? If not, how all these hardware is connected, by usb ?

    Thanks

    Nick

    Well here is the latest news on 6 screens on 1 (one) video card. ATI according to rumors and people that has been testing it will soone come with the "Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity6 Edition" or with a name close to that. The card puts out with the AMD Eyefinity Multi-Display Technology, resolution within something like 5760x2400.

    Not bad - I like it!!

    I'll try to add a picture here (am new to this forum, so need to learn some new stuff)..

    Just put the pictures to mycockpit album, http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/album.php?albumid=96

    Also Samsung has a upcoming 6 panel Thin-Bezel Display.
