    You need to read, read and read. Forums like this and others. Use a search engine for basic questions about simulators and cockpit building.

    You are trying to start too far along what is required. I strongly suggest you first purchase a copy of Flight Simulator FS9 or FSX, depending on what your computer specifications are, and a basic joy stick and have a fly of the simulator. Have you done this yet?

    If not, this is going to be your very first step.

    What you are wanting to achieve is quite complicated for a flight sim beginner so you are going to have to start right at the beginning and this first step is to do what I have suggested above.

    The easiest way is to get an AMD/ATI Eyefinity card for the main three views and a AMD/ATI PCI (-e) card to run your panel screen(s). You can run everything full screen (not windowed).
