Windows 7: 3 displays (2 touch 1 non-touch)

Yep. For Eyefinity this is a must.

One work around I suspect would work to varying degrees, would be to run FSX in 'windowed-mode' instead of fullscreen mode.

That way you could open the control panels and put them on the touchpads without being locked to the Samsung.

The downside is the performance hit of windowed mode and the loss of crossfire since all monitors must be on the 'primary card' for crossfire to work.

the windowd mode I can already say will be no go, that was the first thing I attempted. and could I put them on the 2 DVI ports and 1 HDMI port or must one always be on the display port?

ok your choices are

2 x dvi 1 x display port

1 x dvi 1 x hdmi 1 x display port

your 2 dvi ports and hdmi are effectivly 2 ports not 3, 1 of them will always remain unused on a 3 monitor setup.

to get a third display you must use the display port there are no choices here.

later this year ati/amd plan to release an adapter that can push onto 24+ monitors from a single display port current estimates on a retail price are slated at 100 or there abouts.
