 +Having a physical bezel to simulate two screen from 1 screen. I would suggest not to go this route any longer as current/new/modern tables are using the Full HD 16:9 area so best to keep it open like above.

 +If you prefer a more 'traditional' or 'pure' pinball look. You can still use PuP-Packs and even put the modern PuP-FULL-DMD 'embedded' into the backglass montior with a frame around.
 +
 +IMO Real-DMD are 'brighter' and more authentic, BUT require a more complex software config to get working with all emulators. If you feel you are not a 'power' PC/software type of person then going with a LCD-DMD 4:1 will be easier and you will get benefit of more pixels.

 +
 +===== PuP-Displays. Physical monitors don't matter. =====
 +
 +All PinUP Displays are just virtual windows. Which means they exist anywhere you tell windows to show them and nothing is enforced. If you want to move a PuP-Packs Backglass display to your Topper that is easy. You can have a custom PuPLayout for a 4:3 display. You can have a FullDMD PuPDisplay be on your BackGlass with a frame around. Don't think you are limited by your hardware with PuP-Packs, you can get very creative (once you fuly understand how to use puppackeditor).
 +
 +For example, lets say there's a PuPPack that does everything on the BackGlass. BUT you only have a 2-screen system with noDMD. You could make a custom PuP-Pack layout for that table that makes the BackGlass pupdisplay be the top portion of your backglass (keep 16:9 pupwindow dimensions) and you then use the bottom portion of your 'physical backglass montior' for your freezy/dmdext DMD display. You could even get more creative and add a pupdisplay as a overlay alpha display to add speakers and a frame around the BG and DMD on your physical monitor.
 +
 +You can see this video on how to move a backglass puppack to topper for example: [[https://youtu.be/9FSBGFGWGgY|https://youtu.be/9FSBGFGWGgY]]
