Trading setup - help

hi guys...after numerous attempts & BSOD trying to get the laptop with multiple monitors ...i think the easier router is getting a desktop with 2 graphics cards.

Any help on how the setup should look will be helpful & appreciated. I need tradestation working on 4 monitors due to the processing i do for volume data. What kind of PC configuration should i go for. I have been working with an W520 Lenovo i7 with 4GB....but cannot afford to keep switching screens between multiple tradestation desktops....need to be different for 2013

ANy suggestions on desktop types?... probably need 16/32GB RAM......what Kind of CPU?...etc....any cheapest/best solution works will also help aslong as i can have 4 monitors & decent CPU

thnx

Paps,

I bought a laptop from these guys and am happy with it. They have desktops too and I would get one from them when I need one.

I think the pricing is better than many of the well known online stores such as tradingcomputers.com. I think prices tend to be inflated at the well know stores as if for trading it needs to be expensive. Just some feedback. Good luck.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I'm not sure where they are located. I ordered online. I have one 27" monitor attached to the laptop pluses the laptop itself. It's enough for me.

graphics card

One necessary doesn't need a computer with multiple graphic cards. The cheapest way would be to use a USB graphics card, and you can still hook up multiple monitors to one computer, that has only one internal graphics card. They work for laptops two, and I believe you can find them under $100.00.

Doesn't the W520 support multiple displays with a dock? Have you contact Lenovo support? Have you made sure your using the latest BIOS for your machine? Have you verified that you're running the latest or correct graphics driver for what you are trying to achieve?

If the W520 supports multiple displays, I would think you would want to achieve that no?
