What flight sim? Maybe look up and read on forums about that sim and what cards it does better with, does it work well with SLI or crossfire or not, etc and pick the best card based on the sim, since we don't know what one it is.

We would need more information like what resoloution your monitors are as that is very important. Also I do not know of any single video card that can natively run a game across all 4 monitors. Although 3 should work perfectly fine. If it is an intense flight sim I would reccomend you go for either a 7970 ghz ed. 4gb or a gtx 680 4gb. They are really your only options but it is very important that you have more than 3gb of video ram. I would reccomend atleast 1gb of ram for each screen. (assuming that you are running 1080p or less) Good luck

The game is mx by micro soft. I found A superb find. using dual on video card for vga out, then using Matrox.com/graphics
then finding triple head to go module, One monitor on card, module in other output on card, to 3 monitors gives total of 4 monitors. Found it at a job site I went on, I will let you all know after it all is in to test it. Unless someone already knows :hello:
