How are you getting 3 screens to work with sli?

2-GTX580 in sli
285.38 driver
win 7

It shows options for 5040x1050, but it crashes the game before it loads. I'm having to set Win 7 screen resolution to 1680 x 1050, then same in game, that's the only way I can get game to run.

I've seen various threads on the FS/LS forums on the web. The general consensus seems to be that the game engine was developed for lower end PC's and does not include proper support for higher end graphic card (GPU) functions to work properly. The recommended max res I have seen is like 1920x1080 as the Computer CPU is rendering all the graphics. Some higher resolutions are working for some people, but there are reports of serious lag in the game at higher res. Setting the hardware profile in the games options to a lower setting may help. I'd say your solution is what you need to do for this game. You'll have to test it out at various settings till you find the sweet spot for your system.
