Hello! I would like some advice on the ways I can setup multiple monitors for day trading.
I already have a decent computer, but it only supports one monitor. Can I add more screens, or do
I need to buy a new system? I want for it to support 3-4 Monitors. My current system only supports
one screen. Either way is fine with me. I just need to get a solution as soon as possible. Thanks!

Get 2 cheap video cards, and plug them in (not in SLI/CF). Plug the monitors into the cards, and configure the settings through windows.

You can easily get cheap video cards that support 2 monitors, there is no need to get two!!

Exactly what Peaks said and you can buy a VGA or DVI splitter cable on ebay for something around 2GBP.

Actually, you will need two cheap video cards, because he wants 3-4 monitors.
You could get an NVidia NVS Quadro Card, but that's not considered cheap at $499.

Also, a splitter cable won't work for day trading style multiple monitors.
The only thing that will do is show the same thing on both screens.
It just clones the image and he wants them to act as seperate screens.
