Video card / monitor setup

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Roaders, Jan 27, 2015.

  1. Hi All

    I am going to be building a new PC soon, mostly for work but I want to be able to play Project Cars on it as well.

    My plan is to have 1 widescreen monitor in the center - in portrait orientation and 2 4:3 monitors either side. This works great for developing but I not sure if it's supported. Will Project cars work with this monitor set up?

    Secondly I was thinking about getting 2 video cards. I'm planning on getting a 4GB GTX 760. If I got a second and linked them with SLI would that work? Would all the monitors plug into one video card or what?

    I've never built a system with more than one video card so I don't know how this stuff works.

    Many Thanks

    Moved your thread to the sim racing hardware forum, as I think you'll get more chance on an answer here.

    Hopefully somebody can help you out @Roaders

    I don't know about pcars, but portrait orientation for the center screen is a waste of screen, you will spend one third of it showing the sky and another third showing the (usually not so interesting) cockpit.

    I believe the only way to have triples with nvidia is to have two cards. With AMD you can do it with a single card, but you will likely need an active display port adapter (about 30eur) in order to connect your monitor.

  5. Yes, I realise it's not that good for racing but that's the setup I want for work...
    Thanks for the reply
