We created an Amazon store that's pretty basic and currently only for U.S. shoppers. If you purchase something from it and then other items through Amazon, we make a small commission. It won't cost anymore than Amazon normally does but will help support our show and website and would be greatly appreciated !
You can get to it by going here : http://www.isrtv.com/isrtv-amazon-store/
Thank for your support !
So that's a big NOOOO on 1 ultra wide and 2 16x9 on the side. I would have matched the resolutions on all of the panels @1080p. I'm and AMD guy from way back but used a 7700k this time. By the way, I broke my lower back in 3 places Monday when I went to pick up my brand new ultra light wheelchair. There should have been at least 2 technician's in the office with me making sure I was safe. They adjusted the anti tip bars up to high and I flipped backwards onto a concrete floor and broke 1,2 and 3 of my lower lumbar. The tech didn't even try to help me get to my feet. I knew it was bad and 911 should have been called but I was so embarrassed. I went to the hospital after it happened but it was packed so I waited till the next morning and found to find out I had broken my back.
I own both. Both are excellent and play a different role. For compact size, you can't beat the RS-1. It's my console Rig. For my PC platform, I have the N-1. I've heavily modified this with a NLR v3 motion platform, and lots of custom mounts for a dual shifter + handbrake setup, as well as a full dash with gauges. Both have phenonmenal wheel decks, just rock solid. I'm running an OSW on the N-1, and it doesn't move at all.
The N-1 has a super-stable pedal mount as well, which I use with a hydraulic HPP setup. The only weakness on the RS-1 is the small amount of flex in the stock pedal mount. As its my console rig, I use that with the Fanatec v3 inverteds.
Consider upgrading to a DD wheel for your PC rig. OSW is easier than it sounds, and very competitively priced right now. Single best upgrade I've done, closely followed by the motion platform.
I'm not a super-expert here, but with many sims, you have to use NVidia "Surround" to configure 3-screen operation. NVidia Surround requires 3 identical resolution monitors. I really, really wanted to have a good 4K monitor in the center and 2 1080p monitors for my sides, but that wasn't an option. We're still in the infancy of triple-monitor support for both video drivers and sims. For now, there's several limitations including the need for identical resolution monitors when using nVidia surround.
Edit: Mark nailed it. Thanks for the info, it's a shame that the otherwise excellend Pascal cards from nVidia are hindered by this.
AMD Eyefinity can do those types of resolutions, as well as PLP (Portrait-Landscap-Portrait) but Nvidia can't. Eyefinity has been ahead of Nvidia surround on triple setups for years, but you have to use and AMD card. I'd stick with Nvidia and standard widescreens, I really doubt you'll be disappointed. One advantage of Nvidia is you can try out 3d even in triples. I'm not sure it would work for you given your condition, but it isn't terribly expensive to try if you have the right monitors.
I have a question that's been running through my head..Im not 100% but would X1 ultra wide and X2 16.9 be configurable? An Ultrawide in the middle and the 16x9s for the side monitors. I'm pretty sure I could configure it in the NVidia control panel with the custom resolutions. I never considered a tv panel for my screens. I really need to connect with good folk into this sim racing stuff around the Sacramento Ca area.
