    Choices for Triple Monitor Setup

    Using FS9 with WideView. Like to use 3 monitors for l/r/center views. It looks like the two choices to do this are the 1) Eyefinity/AMD and 2) the Matrox Triple or Dual hardware.

    I was hoping a simple software or programming change within FS9 would allow the 3 views

    Eyefinity does not give you l.r.c views. It just treats the 3monitors as 1 large monitor. It works well but still does not enable you to have a left or right view, just a wider forward view.

    Yes, decided to go with separate PCs running WFS, but starting with 2 for now; just bought a second 20" HP monitor to match my other HP.

    Re: Choices for Triple Monitor Setup

    The only thing I would say is that if you have two monitors for outside views, and you are approaching an airport directly, bear in mind that the runway will be right where the two monitors meet!! (I did that and found that it took away a bit of the realism) Just something to bear in mind!!
