Hi guys,

I notice Dell make a 29' inch super wide screen..

My questions is whether PCars will support this monitor.. IE - will I be able to see more to either side of the car with this monitor?

What you seen on the display will be the same, just larger.

I dont think that is correct. The aspect ratio is different so it couldnt just show you the same as a regular monitor.. it's either wider screen or there is a blacked out part of the screen on either edge.

Yes 21:9 is going to work.

You will see it like this (depending on your FOV):

Whats the resolution of this screen?

Hey EvoM3 - I've been looking at the LG screens for the same reason. You can launch the game in a 21:9 ratio windowed mode to see how the view looks. If you like it then that's the view you'll get but larger on the wide screen. Maybe see you on the track!

EDIT: add the startup parameter -windowsize 1920,820 this will start the game in Windowed mode with a 21:9 ratio and give you an idea how it will look and what you'll see.

Depending on your FOV, yes. The monitor has a resolution of 2560x1080 so you'll have more horizontal display.

What do you have for a graphics card?:)

Sorry, but this isn't even close to being correct.

How do I know? I have a 21:9 monitor as well as triples. You get a much wider field of view. It doesn't just make whats on the screen bigger. I wouldn't worry too much about it hogging up more video card bandwidth. I don't see a lot of difference in framerates at 1920x1080 than 2560x1080.

Works great and pCars picks it up straight away, you tend to be able to run slightly wider fov at any given distance. If you can, have a look at the 34" ones, it's a lovely screen and fills your view nicely

Here is another thread discussing how to set your 16:9 monitor to display 21:9.

A 60hz monitor refreshes the screen 60 times per second. Therefore, a 60hz monitor is only capable of outputting 60fps. It can still feel smoother to play at a higher framerate than your monitor can display however, because input lag with your mouse will be reduced. You might also start to see tearing though, which happens when your videocard is rendering frames faster than your monitor can display them.

I have an AOC 34" 21:9 monitor and it's great with pCars.
