Is this a good touch monitor for dcs a-10c+Helios?


Recommended Posts

i am considering getting a 23" monitor to use for dcs a-10c with helios and if anyone knows alot about them could u tell me if this one is fast and responsive and wont have too much delay because i will be having my mfcds on it so don't really want much delay and if it works for windows 7 because thats what im on atm.

 

monitor: http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/hewlett-packard-hp-pavilion-23-led-touchscreen-monitor-23tm-23tm/10272233.aspx?path=253f2936cf834252372fb7b77008bc6den02

 

im just not good at finding out this kind of stuff and don't wanna buy it and it not work well thanks to anyone who can help.

 

im looking to have it setup like this guys but only 1 main 27" monitor for now with the 23" touch below it:

 

so the info i basically need is:

 

1. is it a good responsive monitor and good for dcs a-10c with helios

 

2. does it work on windows 7

 

3. does using helios have a big effect on framerate? here are my specs and i am on mainly medium settings right now with some set to high

 

SPECS: intel i7 3770 3.40GHz

 

gtx 660 1gb

 

8gb ram

 

windows 7

 

64-bit

 

1tb HDD

 

and i use g27 as rudder pedals with 27" main display and hotas warthog with track ir 5

You should be fine, with one exception. That 660 is a bit light in VRAM to handle both displays.

Wod I be able to handle both displays if I turned down some settings? If so what settings could I turn down to be able to handle both displays because I have an Alienware x51 so idk if I can fit a bigger graphics card in the case let alone afford a new one

I ran a two display setup with the lower monitor running Helios on a touchscreen. At the time I had a GTX680. It was barely ok. I put in a 780 and it ran well although I still had some settings turned low or off. Distance view, water, HDR are still set low even with the 780. It's amazing how easily DCS can bring a powerfully graphics card to its knees. Not that the GTX780 is That powerful.

 

Also beware that Helios can cause its own issues. I was getting extreme lag between DCS and Helios to the point it was almost unplayable. Don't know how or why. Then one day it stopped on its own. Now I get stuttering. When Helios is turned off...no more stutter. Go figure:huh:

 

I think it's very much machine dependent. Try it and see how it runs.

 

You won't be disappointed with the touchscreen though. It really is great technology.:)

The GTX780 isn't powerful?? Am I completely out of the loop on graphics cards? I thought the 780 was pretty high end equipment.

May want to consider a smaller touchscreen and upgrade your video card? Or if you have a monitor just sitting around collecting dust, use it with one of the monitor touchscreen converters. Maybe make a powerglove? I will google and put up links when I get the chance. Hopefully this afternoon

If you can't run two 1080p screens with a 780 then you need to seriously look at what else is going on with your machine.

Wow, yea, I should think!

 

I have an nVidia 760. I run 1080P to a 27" and then a 1280x1024 touchscreen (with Helios) right next to it. With SweetFX tweaked well and in-game AA at 4x I average 40fps. My ghetto rig: http://imgur.com/a/Vcz5G.

 

Might want to look into disabling all antialiasing using your GFX card's interface. Set it to "Let the application decide." Then set your AA in-game. I found a nice improvement doing that. (source:

I have a Planer 22" that works very well. It's not a Windows8 (has a raised bezel) monitor so it can be had fairly cheap. I bought mine for $225 new on Amazon. The money you save can be put towards a video card.

 

Just checked and there's one on ebay for $150 and free shipping. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Planar-PX2230MW-22-Touch-Screen-Widescreen-LCD-Monitor-w-Speakers-1920x1080-/251579869275?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item3a9354285b
