    monitor set ups

    need help configuring monitors for my cockpit. have a 5850 ati graphics card. only three monitors allowed.
    come to find out this card takes up all the space in my gateway fx so no cards can be added, what i would like to do is have 3 monitors for the front outsisw view an3 monitors for the panel captain an fo will be exactly the same clone and a center monitor for gauges. have thought of several options

    1 get rid of the graphics card and buy a 5870 6 that will display 6 monitors
    2. triple head 2 go and have two dvi attachments for the panel if that will work use one for the three monitors andd one for capt and fo panel clone 1 for the misc gauges
    3 get a projector for the front view (already purchased 6 monitors 3 23in and 3 20in)

    need help in going the cheapest way since i have already blown the buget for this portion of the project

    thanks <><

    Hi,
    Another option is to buy a cheap second computer and run the panels over a network using widefs and suitable instrument software.
    That way the main computer will be for the forward views and run faster.
