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

Saroj, a dual DVI card is a better choice. Maybe a 9400gt/9500gt fanless, SLI ready.

Cunparis, if your motherboard have 2 pci-x (SLI/Cross-Fire ready), just add the same video card, this is the cheaper/smarter solution.

yes, Sam.. I meant to include a dual DVI... just didn't know how to "find" that... wasn't seeing anything in the description so I thought perhaps that was standard now... my Dell is a dual and yet it has a single port that has a splitter which send the image to two monitors... thanks for having a look at it. Anything else?

What about HD's?

ok... gocha... thanks!

The Samsung F3 is a good choice, you can take this one. Not very noisy, and quite fast.

No, don't get a quad DVI card, waste of money unless your motherboard is proprietary/old and doesn't have an available PCI Express slot, or it has on-board video and you can't match the chipset. Hopefully neither is the case, in which case just buy a second cheap card (~$60) with the same chipset (nvidia, amd) and you'll be fine.

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)

I don't think I have two pciexpress slots, and I'm sure I don't have SLI.

But the more I think about it, the more I think 2 monitors should be enough. I'm currently trying out a new method that uses only 1 timeframe. This could be the easiest answer.

I just use 2 monitors. One is for trading, which has my charts and DOM. The other has some other markets I watch but don't trade and a Windows Media Player streaming CNBC as well as a trading chat room I hang out in during the morning. And go big: you're probably better off with 2 large monitors (26"-28") than 3 normal-sized (20"-22") monitors, and no extra video card needed.
