I am looking to Upgrade my Computer & Sim setup which is currently 3 x PCs for the 3 Views.
However due to the maintenance & upkeep of software, addons, windows etc I'm hoping it's not too difficult to use a SINGLE PC for the 3 Views & run P3D V4x with ORBX, various Addons & still achieve high Frame Rates & excellent visuals.

Assuming this is quite feasible I'd be grateful for some advice as to the Best way to go about this.
I'm looking at the ASUS GTX1080 TI 11gb GPU & a compatible ASUS MB & 32Gb Ram.

But the cost of the MBs vary considerably, does it really matter which model I choose?
Which CPU should I look at & is it necessary to still Over Clock these days?
What's the Fastest CPU on the market right now?

My Screen is Curved 228 deg' & 3 x BenQ 1920x1080 W1080ST Projectors.

I do already have a Digital TH2GO.
Is it possible to display the CORRECT FOV on all screens using the TH2GO or if not could I use the 3 DVIs on the GTX 1080 TI or even install 2 x GTX1080s ?

Regarding the Views; does the P3D View Groups provide the displayed FOV & does this take the place instead of using WideView or OPUS FSI?
I may be getting myself a bit confused here & need some enlightenment.

Thanks.

Howard,

I am not up to speed in regards to the latest and greatest CPUs but I would stay away from the Asus 97 and 99 Series Motherboards. They have a nasty BIOS Issue preventing them from Booting to the OS when multiple USB Devices are connected. The problem is intermittent and hard to troubleshoot. It took me well over a year to get my PC to Boot reliable...

Regards Simon

Hi Howard

I use 1 PC for my 200 curved screen. Take a look of my PC specifications at the botom of mthis post (signature). It runs very smooth. Even Im not smart on computer things, I could build a good sim.

Thanks Simon for the heads up on the Asus MBs & Daniel I didn't understand where you said to look for your PC Specs.

Can you pls give me the link.
Thanks,
Howard.

Thanks Jack, how silly of me! Must have been one of my senior moments.

Daniel & Jack,
Can you give me some info on how your views are configured?
How are you running the views...
Are using TH2GO, or VIEW GROUPS or WideView...
Which Warping software are you using?

When using a TH2GO do you still need to use View Groups or is that what TH2GO is basically taking the place of?

And in your opinions would running a TH2GO make more demands on a single pc than connecting three projectors directly to the outputs on one or two GPUs?

Daniel,

Which screen did you go with for your 200 projection screen? I'd love to go with Nat but logistics and price make that unavailable to me.

Hello Howard, sorry for responding too late. I was out of the city. Below ypu will find the answers

Daniel & Jack,
Can you give me some info on how your views are configured?
3 PROJECTORS (LEFT, CENTER AMD RIGHT VIEWS)

How are you running the views...
I'M USING ONE 1080Ti GRAPHIC CARD, THREE MONITORS CONNECTED TO IT.

Are using TH2GO, or VIEW GROUPS or WideView...
I'M USING VIEWGROUPS

Which Warping software are you using?
I DID USE FLY ELISE SOFTWARES. EASY TO USE AND SETUP FOLLOWING THE USER MANUAL

When using a TH2GO do you still need to use View Groups or is that what TH2GO is basically taking the place of?
REALLY DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER

And in your opinions would running a TH2GO make more demands on a single pc than connecting three projectors directly to the outputs on one or two GPUs? I HAVE ANY PROBLEM CONNECTING 3 PROJECTORS TO ONE GRAPHIC CARD.

I'M NOT GOOD ON COMPUTERS STUFF, BUT i THINK THE COMBINATION OF A GOOD MOBO, PROCESSOR AND GRAPHIC CARD CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
