Speak for yourself.
You guys are so old school AC was the current sim when I started sim racing so it's pretty much all I've ever played.
From the pictures in the article it looks like they've got serious distortion issues on that triple setup. Can that be dialled out I wonder...?
Any time I take pictures like that of my setup it looks like things don't line up or are distorted. It's because all the settings pumped into the AC triples app is based on my seating position so when I'm sat in my rig it looks perfect
Reason: a cockpit, lounge suite, bookshelves, TV and entire kitchen squeezed into a 4m x 6m space is quite difficult.
Get rid of the kitchen get triple 32s? Who needs a kitchen anyway, as long as there is a beer fridge?
Yes I have triple 23" 1920x1080 monitors with:
So 1080Ti it is... how can I get that past the wife I wonder...

2 eleven normal or GT4 ?
Don't mind. The escorts are always good for a fun run too.
I just gave it a quick go.
Initially I thought I wasn't going to be able to try it at all as my pedals were inverted and I couldn't find the option for inversion. It was there just had to click in the right place.
With my GTX 970 and the default EPIC graphics settings at a triple screen resolution I had around 30fps and it was choppy. I set everything down to medium which gave me somewhere in the mid 50s so would need to drop some things to low to achieve a constant 60.
I tried two of the different wet weathers and couldn't see any rain at all. The track was wet and slippery but no visible rain so not sure why that was. There was the sound of it hitting the car but nothing to be seen.
Without proper triple support it's not worth trying any further at the moment as the stretched view was giving me a headache after just a few laps of testing.
So - new graphics card + cpu, new screens, new wheel!!
What GPU do you have Gratulin? And you can never have too many wheels anyway?

Good price for 27inch ips, did you set the over drive setting to lower the pixel response time, only asking because my brother was looking at a viewsonic and 5ms response time was not default. Also not suggesting you need it but this video looked good for triple set ups. Would like to do triples one day...very cool
I haven't looked at the overdrive setting but I'll see if I can find it.

Cool, what did you get? slim bezels
They're these: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/37083/viewsonic-va2719-sh-fhd-27in-ips-monitor
Nothing special. I actually needed monitors for the new home office, so convinced the wife it made more sense to upgrade the sim monitors and use the old ones for the office
I just wanted 27" with a slimmer bezel. My old ones were 15mm per monitor. They're not lined up perfectly but I spent 3 hours doing it and I'd had enough. The side ones are slightly further forward with the bezels overlapping a little and very slightly higher, so things don't line up 100% in game but it's not really noticeable once playing.
