However as I simplified my trading strategy to a point where all I really need is one chart, the 2nd monitor mainly serves as excess space for futures.io (formerly BMT), news / movies if market's slow or yet to be opened.
While actually trading, it is (should^^) be turned off.
For other computer related stuff & coding I REALLY REALLY love having two reasonably sized monitors. As for my actual trading they'd be useless if my notebook had a bigger screen. (13" is a bit small, with a 17" one I would most probably be fine, tradingwise... sth for christmas, maybe )
All kidding aside, this is a purpose built system I put together early in 2011. I designed it to run eight monitors from four Nvidia Quadro NVS 295 video cards. This MSI motherboard sports 5 PCI Express slots. At the time of the build I installed 4 Samsung BX2331's I added 2 more soon after. I have had all 8 connected and everything preforms without issue. I've since retired 2 of the 8 monitors to my "internet connected" computer. My eyesight ain't what it was 10 years ago and I've sure enjoyed the charts that often take up an entire 23 inch screen!
