What are the specifications of your trading PC? Does your LINUX box run an actual automated strategy with money backing it or does it simply run an analysis which you base your further trading off of?

My PC (tradestation, etc) is an intel i7 2600 with 32 GB of RAM running Win7 64bit. I've got a 256MB SSD for the main OS drive and 1TB RAID for data.

My linux box is a dual XEON x5570 quad-core (8 thread) machine with 48GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD with multiple TB's of RAID for data. I run quite a bit of analysis using python on the box. The analysis drives lots of things including running some live strats through IB.

07:00 with the ocean view is my favorite.

This is also a good video for inspiration:-

I love the setup of Tom Grisafi.

Very nice, your running all of those screen on a single card?

I have the same card, AMD FirePro W600, yes it has (6) mini-DisplayPort outs and can power six DP monitors at once.

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.

problem


Limitless100 View Post
Thanks

the only probem i have with the AMD w600 is that it doesn't handle the screen safe well
it pops up with a warning, if the screen goes in power save mode
and when moving the mouse comes back

maybe it's a driver issue
but would be happy to hear other people's experience

seems like the screeen sends and signal to the card when in power save

even worse if you power donw a screen
the desktop goes all crazy
even in horizontal mode

besides that...
perfect screens, excellent graphics card
good performance and good resolution
fast and good

It's funny, I used to get that every day in power save mode at night in Dallas.

Then I moved the whole setup here, and now that error is gone. But I have a new worse one, one of the monitors always "lags" but a few milliseconds when turning on, causing all my charts to fly off that monitor and on to other monitors. I have to then exit Sierra and reload to put them all back on the right monitor (much faster than dragging them). Extremely annoying.

It's not the monitor as I changed to a different monitor and it made no difference. Apparently a driver issue.

Now that I am thinking about it, I'll go update to the newest release.

And we're off topic so I won't post more in this thread, but if you find a fix please let me know.

I have personally had this happen to me on my platform as well. I never understood what it was. My charts on one monitor would all be totally off and moved towards the main screen. Not sure if it's due to crappy monitor or GPU.

i love this, but personally I couldn't move beyond 4 vertical because it would totally destroy my stereo image by pushing the left and right speakers too far apart

curious - how quiet is the AMD pro card? I use a gaming model card, the 7970 that has six outputs (4 x displayport, 2 x DVI), because I was able to place a waterblock on it therefore removing cooling fans from the card - my PC is dead silent at 50cm
