    3 Screen Setup

    I'm just in the process of attaching 3 screens to a frame, do I butt the monitors together so there is a double bezel or do I position the side monitors slightly behind the centre monitor so that there is only 1 bezel.

    I've seen it done both ways but which one is the preferable method used, for graphics settings and use etc.

    No matter which way you do it you will not get a true Triple Screen Experience with Project Cars. I have a Triple Screen setup and I have gone back to just using the middle screen due to the fact that Project Cars does not have True Triple Screen Support. It will display across all 3 screens but your outer screens will stretch and distort the images on them.

    If you still want to go head and set it up I recommend using the overlap.

    Yeah, I know the 3 screen support is non existent, which is such a great shame.

    I will also be using RaceRoom Experience and iRacing so it will be worth the effort

    Whenever you pass a car just pretend it is the "executive long wheel base limo version" of that car, because execs need to get places fast you know.

    Anyway I don't mind it that much to be honest, happy enough I can actually see what's beside me. However, it's a shame they did not implement it properly though, true.

    It really depends on your options. I prefer to have the bezel's overlap which reduces the total bezel distance. I'm not using a stand; I just have them sitting on top of my desk which allows a little more freedom of setup. However if you are using a triple monitor stand, most of them aren't designed in a way to make that happen.
