I have 3, with one on top and two on bottom, and the one on top is centered, right in the middle of the two on bottom. I use Windows 7 and it does a great job of letting me align these this way. Special software not required, all native to Windows.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

Ditto for me. Works great, 2 graphics cards, and bottom 2 monitors are lower resolution (1680x1050) than the top one (1920x1080), I just have to choose 'stretch' for the background picture to be tidy enough. Ninja spans all 3 without a hiccup.

Travel Well

Kt and or big mike...
I am finishing up a build and now tryin to decide on whether I should get 3-1080p 24" screens Or start with 3 24" 1200p. Do you see a noticeable difference or do you wish that you got the 1200s. I am wondering if its worth it the uptick in costs. At most I have 4 chart running per screen.
Thanks for your advise.

Jngrim it depends overall on personal preference I have 1080p on my Asus monitors and so have not experienced 1200p and boy do I LOVE my monitors though. But if you are an extremely visual guy and that extra bit of space makes it that much easier for you to trade I believe you shoul get the 1200p.

For those of you in the know, do you have to have an even number of monitors when using a video card that supports multiple monitors?

For example can you use 3 monitors? The only reason I ask is because im wondering how Windows would handle things on 3 monitors in terms of where things are logically (virtually?) laid out.

2, 4, 6 etc monitors is fairly logical for a 'square' windows desktop. what about 3 or 5 monitors.



I personally like having a central monitor and don't want to
Be turning my head left or right all day to look at my main screen so this means 2,4,8 etc don't work because there is no centralized area of work where most of my screen time is spent while setups like 3,6,10 etc allow for a trader to look straight ahead the way our head is naturally suppose to be instea of constantly to the left or right. Again this is personal preference, I believe when tradin you should be as comfortable as possible giving you every little "edge" as possible.
