My TH2Go died. What to do next?

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Mr Pibb, Jul 13, 2013.

  1. Hi.

    I'm a long time TH2Go user. It's been so long I've forgotten how long it's been, something like 7 years. When they first came out anyway. I have loved each and every moment of that thing, and my god - it's had some use! It's been a real trooper but sadly, only a couple days ago, it died. I miss it badly already. :(

    Needless to say, there's no going back to single screen. So I'm gonna upgrade my GPU (current GTX 560 Ti 2GB) to a 760 GTX 4GB. I've seen one for just over £200 so it's a cheap way to go from my TH2Go with pretty decent performance. Good bang for buck I reckon.

    The thing is that I'm as happy as a pig in poo with my current 3x19" 5:4 monitors. It gives me 3840x1024 and I'm more than happy with that. So I wanna re-use them. This is also a wife-friendly option...

    I see the GTX 760 has 1xDual-link DVI-I, 1 x Dual-link DVI-D, 1 x HDMI and 1 x Displayport outputs.

    My current monitors (BenQ FP93G X) have DVI-D plugs, but I don't know if they're dual-link or not. The DVI-D cables supplied have a group of about 6 pins missing in the centre of the 24 pin group - forming two groups of 9 pins. I assume these are single-link DVI-D cables.

    This leads me to conclude the monitors are not dual-link?

    In short, what cables or adaptors will I need to run these monitors on the GTX760? I should also add that I have a 4th VGA touch-screen monitor I use in my race sim cockpit, and I want ro retain this too. The 760 can run four monitors, or so I read.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Those resolutions you dont need dual link DVI.
    Thats for monitors with resolution of 2560x1440 and up.
    Any monitor up till 1920x1200 will work fine with single link DVI
     
  3. you are wright richerd i agree with you....
     
  4. Thanks guys - you're right, I've got the monitors running on my new GTX760 with single link DVI cables no problem. Thanks for the help.
