    When you use several monitors for FSX does it affect the quality of the video output your card gives? Do you need something like eyeinfinity so that the video output is still good quality? Or should a good graphics card and up to date drivers handle several monitors without loss of quality onscreen?

    Please accept my apologies for the late reply.
    To answer your question - any card with more than one output is designed to deliver full quality video to all outputs.

    Hi guys.


    I signed up as a tester for the pre-RTM version of Win 8 and after a few months of playing around with it I'd had enough. I didn't like it enough to spring for a copy once it was released so I feel don't have the level of experience with it (vis a vis video driver installation) to write up an accurate step-by-step guide.
    You will also notice that Vista doesn't have its own section in the guide either but it is similar to 7 when it comes to video driver installation and, as I recall from my limited experience with Win 8, that's the case with Win 8 as well. So, if you follow the steps for Vista/Win7, it should work out. When you get the part on using a driver cleaner, I suggest you use Driver Sweeper from Guru3D (now called Display Driver Uninstaller) as it is Win 8 compatible.

    Easy. Just use DDU to remove all traces of the old driver. Reboot computer and install new.
    Set preferences in the sim and you are done.

    You should ALWAYS use DDU between driver versions (339.xxx-417.xx). There is no need intra-version (417.39 - 417.53)

    Also don't bother with anything other than the prime driver for the graphics (GeForce Experience, Physx or any of the bloatware)
