Just updated my rig to Crossfire ASUS R9 280X Matrix cards. So far so good with the install and driver update. These are the ASUS 6-port aftermarket cards so I have maximum Eyefinity options available for future projects. Now I just wish I had 6 BenQ W1080ST to abuse the cards with. I can dream I guess. :D

Hi Brad
I am currently running 3 Optoma Gt750E projectors, Triplehead2Go Digital version plus Asus GTX570 at a res of 3840x1024 for FSX. With the arrival of P3Dv2, I feel its a great time to upgrade and say goodbye to FSX. Do you know if P3Dv2 will support a res of 5760x1080. I would like to keep my projectors and change my graphics card to say the R9 280X (1 only) would I need to keep the triplehead2go ? and would I need the other R9 280X card to make it work.
Thanks for your help
Regards Robert

I'll need to check with my triple-LCD setup to be sure. My projection setup is only dual-projector. I have P3D 2.0 installed. P3D is still a lot like FSX, just more optimized and better rendering core. I need to do a bit of digging around in it to see what the differences are in the next few weeks though. I've only had about 20 minutes of seat time with it so far.

Also have a GTX770 now that I can swap in I recently picked up. I can test games against both AMD and Nvidia now.
