I have multiple live lifetime licenses on NT running frequently. The only restriction is you can't have multiple NT instances connected TO THE SAME BROKERAGE ACCOUNT at the same time. So, on one I can have NT connected to my Mirus/ZenFire account, and on another I can connect to my AMP futures account (free demo acct) or GAIN (forex) or Yahoo (EOD stocks). The only restriction is that I can't have multiple NT instances connected to the same account at the same time.

Saroj, it looks like a good system with good parts, nice work.

Personally, I would not get that video card. I would get a dual DVI card with an nVidia chipset, but that's just me. I went with more eVGA 9500GT's when I built my current system in March, it was pretty much the cheapest card I could find, and I like eVGA stuff (my mainboard is the eVGA x58). I've been an nvidia fan boy forever.

I also would not buy a Samsung drive, I would go with WD. But it's just me, I have no personal experience with Samsung drives being bad, but used to work closely with engineers and the like at WD, and I like their new stuff a lot. I have two Black edition 750's in my current system, and two NS Seagate 750's (in RAID 0+1 w/3Ware 9690SA), and the WD's are smokin fast. My disk array is overkill, but disk drives are the slowest part of any modern system, by far.

Enjoy.

Mike

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.

Thanks much, Mike... I like WD as well, but I saw a bad review of the larger ones on New Egg which put me off... I'll dig around a little more.

Also appreciate your feedback on the video card... definitely don't want problems in that area...

I have a nvidia card which supports two DVI monitors. I'd like to add a 3rd monitor. so I have to buy a new card right? My card is pciexpress (I think), if I buy a new card would it be PCI? I'm not sure how to add a 2nd card.

Would it be better/easier to get a card that supports 4 monitors?

Thanks

cun... its been a very long time since I was in the computer HW biz so can't answer specifically... I think matrox made a 4-monitor card a while back, but the duals are more common and cheaper... it is very easy to add a card as long as you have a vacant slot for it of the type it requires.

I hope I'm doing the right thing here, but whenever I have to open a case to add or replace a card or add memory, I take the time to vacuum it out, clean the fan blades, etc. I know I have to ground myself or the case to avoid static but other than that (and the obvious of not knocking against components) is there anything else to be careful of?
