I use an Nvidia GeForce 9500 with dual DVI outs. Runs 2 24" Dell monitors flawlessly. My PC is a stock Dell Inspiron. I upgraded to an LSI 400W power supply, the video card, and another 4GB or RAM.

Intel HD 3000

I am trading with my HP EliteBook 6930p 1440/900 and an old external Eizo screen (via VGA) with 1280/1024. And I don't want more resolution or a PC. It is used for trading only with Ninjatrader, 15 charts with one or two simple indicators each.

I want to replace the laptop with the HP EliteBook 8460p (and still use the external monitor).

Does it make sense to use one with the entry level radeon 6470m or is the intel HD 3000 for trading only OK? (less heat, less battery, cheaper)

The specs:

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.

if you have the case room, it will be more cost effective to grab two cards. Otherwise at a minimum you are looking at a Fire Pro W600 from AMD which will require mini display port to your-monitor-input adaptors x 6. The gaming cards offer greater RAM, better cooling and more standard sized IO

Sapphire recently released a card that does 5 monitors, the RX580. Six monitors is a tonne of screen real estate.
