    they work fine but if you want teh benefit of Freesync feature with NVIDIA GPU, you need to output video through DP ports because it wont work over HDMI. I had bought my triple 27 1080p screens far before the announcement from NVIDIA earlier this year and they have HDMI,DVI and VGA so it was not working.
    decided to buy a VEGA64 LC for this rig and build a mini ITX rig in the living room with my 1080Ti driving a 4K TV so now I can do Simracing wherever I want lol)

    ASUS presented this at CES 2018 and it never made it to the market AFAIK. I saw some DIY solutions replicating this idea but looked ugly to my eyes

    Wouldn't it be better than the black line borders?

    Those black borders do not distract me at all. When racing they tent to disappear from my eyesight. Often the Left one is exactly in front of the post from the left side window and front window. You hardly notice it.

    Very true..the left one is hardly ever noticable. Your brain tend to dismiss both bezels during the race and you wont even remember that the bezel/s exist. Strange thing but true. Unless you only think about the bezels and not race.

    I can see that being the case , thats why i thought these stripes would be super effective , making something you hardly see now completely invisible .
    Im going to try and find them anyway especially if there only under $100 .

    You will be dissapointed as bezel corner of the screen will be blurry and worse than having a large bezel

    Yeah the bezel on the right sorta feels like roll cage bar; your eye just tend to dismiss it as part of the interior of the car and won't bother you at all

    It's way better the a super wide screen where it outside edges start to look stretch. Nothing beats triples at this stage for me

    Depending on the car, the bezel might actully be where the A-pillar of the car is so it's not in the way of anything. All other times, I rarely notice it, especially during a heated race. Did a 90 mins race last night and I noticed it once on 1 corner....but after 40+ laps on the Nurburgring your mind starts to wonder on occasion :D

    Also, I'd imagine you'd need to have all your monitors perfectly aligned vertically for that ASUS thing to work (some monitor stands/mounts make it extremely difficult to get this right...like mine: the GT Omega triple monitor stand)...

    ...where others seem to be more rigid with vertical placement, which gets you perfect alignment, like the SimLab Stand (which I ordered initially but the mail service "lost it"):

    Is it possible, to the the correct fov with single screen?
    I tested it, but the fps are going down.
    Here are my values: -triScr 60 0 39 33 0 39 33 0 0 39 33 0 0
    When i use the ingame setting 0.5 or 0.6 i have got a bigger or smaller fov, but not the correct value AND much less of FPS. (0.5 and 0.6 >200, the triple setups only >150)

    Here are some pics for compare: https://photos.app.goo.gl/R2jEQiX7NXijnU7Y9

    The 39 (-triScr 60 0 39 33 0 39 33 0 0 39 33 0 0) are 1/3 of my screen with 118cm,
    if i use the 118, the picture are to narrow.

    not sure if you should enter values in steam for a single screen? I never did for single.

    To other note, is your screen placed high above the steering wheel?

    not it don't placed over the screen.
    But, if you use a 49" screen with utra wide, you can't set this time the correct value for FoV.
    I hope we found a solution.

    Odd question, but will these parameters allow for different monitors (24-32-24")?
