Trying to build a trading computer and looking into buying a single graphics card that will be able to support 4 screens, and this will be the first computer I've built. I don't need anything crazy but also dont want to have multiple graphics cards in MOBO, needs at minimum 1 GB and DDR3 or better. Thanks for any advice on which products to look into.

If your just displaying data and not running anything that needs a lot of power you can save a bit of money with something like this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... just get the correct adapters for the screens you plan on using.


Thanks. That look like a good option. I think part of my issue is I don't know exactly how much power I'll need, being new to computer building. The biggest thing is that it will work with the 4 screens and be fast, no delay in time from the trading exchange to my trading software. Which is what I'll have up, probably closer to 20 tabs continuously updating and graphs. I definitely have plenty to look into now

Yeah that card should be fine for you, what your asking it to do isn't that intensive. Having a large number of web pages open will tax your system RAM and CPU, but mostly just need a decent amount of RAM. Any modern CPU should handle what your asking with ease.
