Best computer vendor

I usually assemble my own computers, but admittedly, troubleshooting the latest and most up to date hardware systems is a royal pain in the a**, especially with multiple monitor setups. It took me something like 8 months to get my last system stable and I still experience the occasional lockup.

Just wondering, does anyone have a great vendor - fully assembled, multi-monitor ready, state of the art, and trouble free comps - they can recommend?

Thanks in advance.=!

I have one by Custom Trading Computers - Custom Built Specifically for Traders and have been happy with it. I have also heard of xview.com and they supposedly make a good machine. Hubert Senters of Trade the Marktets says he likes Xview FWIW.

How many monitors do you want, more than four or not ?

I have a two Fujitsu-Siemens Celsius V series, with two dual display graphic cards in, I'm happy with them. I think it might be possible to replace these cards by two quad-monitor cards (ATI FirePro), to have 8 monitors.

Yes, I do. Velocity Micro in Richmond VA for Desktops. These guys specialized in gaming machines, which I find great for trading. They are built to order, and completely built from start to finish, by one technician. I have been using them since 2004, and they do understand customer service.

I had one machine, that needed to go home for repair. I was in daily contact with the tech working on it.

You configure the machine for multi monitor, but I'd buy the monitors elsewhere.

If however you want a notebook, then I'd check out Custom Laptops by PowerNotebooks.comô - Custom Built Gaming Laptop Computers They are top drawer, and the owner Donald Stratton, is a really hands on guy in providing service.

Keep it simple

Some time ago most of the trading rooms of the large banks were equipped with HP workstations / Matrox cards with multiple monitors. Matrox has come out of date and HP workstations are still a bit expensive. Actually I do not think that you need a special trading PC.

My current PC, which I bought in 2007 is a simple Dell Precision 690 Workstation which came equipped with 2 low priced NVidia Quadro NVS 285 graphic adapters*). The mainboard only has one slot for a graphic adapter but Dell used a graphic riser to put in the two cards. This allows me to connect up to 4 monitors, which is good enough for me. The whole thing cost me less than USD 2000,-. It broke down only once. Dell has onsite service, so they came and repaired it. However, the soundchip of the motherboard never recognized any microfone. So I spent another USD 20,- to buy myself a USB microphone. That's it. No work and no worries. I am not linked to Dell and I do not want to make any publicity for them. I am sure that there are other suppliers in the US who can make similar offers.

*) NVS 285 is not suited for playing video games, LOL.

A trading PC basically is a machine with the strongest processor you can get. Then just make sure it has the right graphics adapter (now could take NVidia Quadro NVS 450) and connect up to four monitors, which you bought at any discount store close to your home. Don't take a gaming machine, those are optimized for videos and graphics rendering.

That's not very complicated, is it?

I am using three 24 inch-ers at the moment that I am more than happy with and I have plenty of room.

Thanks for all the replies. I would option for a gaming machine and water cooled as well. I haven't had any problems with this machine performance wise (it is about 2 years old now: Q9450 with 8 gigs of RAM) but after Thursday's action I thought it might be a good idea to start monitoring processor loads. I had some pauses in the stocks I was watching.

Be careful with that water cooling, all your trades will be under water....
