Thanks so far. I am thinking about upgrading from my Vapor-X HD 5870 to a better card as I have the lucky possibility to do this for free :) it would be a 1:1 change. So I am not sure which graphic card would perform better than my HD 5870 which I am using till now.Is the GTX 580 capable to server 3 displays at a time like my HD 5870 is? So will it be able to use a triple screen setup with only one GTX 580, without Matrox TH2Go ? Any GTX 580 user out there who can tell me if there are any issues (driver related, or FSX related) with FSX? Should I use BP=0 or not with this card? And my last question: is the AA quite acceptable or is it noticeable worse than my ATI displays right now?Thanks so far.

nVidia cards will deliver better performance compared to the ATI/AMD offerings in FSX. So far as I know, running multiple monitors (up till 6) without TH2Go however can only be achieved with ATI/AMD cards.Regarding performance of the 6970, I have not yet seen it benchmarked against the 580 in FSX. Some people on this forum report good performance thought only not backed up with figures.
