All,

I want to use 3 - 55"or 60" TV's one straight in front and the other two at 45's for the OTW Views. I have saw other examples of this online and wanted to get some direction/opinions on nVidia triple setup vs the Matrox triplehead 2 go, if anyone can shed some technical and directional light would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks All
Jeff in St.Paul, MN

If you are using an nVidia graphics card you can just use nVidia Surround to stretch the views across the 3 TV's. Lots of info out there on how to do it and also YouTube.

Hi Jeff,

Just checking that you are not intending to run your 3 views in 4k as neither NVidia or Matrox setups will be able to drive that. 1080p should be fine though.

Hi Jeff
I started with TH2Go but switched to nVidia Surround some years ago when I got an FSX optimised PC.
NVidia is easier to use, I think, and has an easy bezel correction which I find works well with some narrow bezel Benq monitors.
But with either system you get picture “stretch” on the outer monitors with both FSX and P3D v4, which I am using.
Regards.
Chris
