Almost all graphics card support dual-monitors - and all operating systems, too.

You'll just need a DVI-VGA adapter so you can plug it in.

Donald told me about his dual monitors and I had another monitor and converter myself, so we got my dual monitor setup as well! :grinning:

I like it a lot.

Does MS flight sim support multiple monitors with different views (like a real simulator) ?

Found this on the web from about 3 years ago...apparently a genuine 13 monitor MSFT Flight Sim setup.

Looking at all the towers under the desk, it's a bit more than just a multiple monitor setup !
Must be fun to fly though.
(I've landed a British Airways Tristar, in heavy gusting wind, with a starboard engine failure, and got it on the ground in one piece right down the runway centre-line, on one of their real sims at London Heathrow, and that felt quite real, complete with turbulence and landing thump. I dont think MS have got the 6 degrees of freedom hydraulics integrated yet ! )

At age 18 I almost started training to be a BOAC (now BA) pilot, but unfortunately my eyesight was 1 point over the limit. Nowadays you can be almost legally blind and be a pilot - maybe a slight exaggeration, but you know what I mean.

Snap !
I too spent a weekend at Hamble on a selection board for BOAC, and was failed on my colour vision.
(I'm have anomolous trichromatism - which means I'm not classically colour blind with a missing colour sense, I see all 3 primary colours, but not in the same balance as "normal")
I therefore had to fork out my own money to get my PPL, which is restricted to day flying only.
