I am building a multi monitor (at least 4 1920 x 1080) and multi application trading computer, stocks, futures, options, 24/5 hours I'm starting with new I7-2700K quad processor. Motherboard would be best with PCIe 2.0 with x16 lanes X 2. Two video cards with 2 DVI ports each. 2 Sata III drives, maybe 1 10K Raptor drive and 1 SSD drive. What is a reliable motherboard? Also starting video card search. Does dual AMD video cards with SLI help on driving multiple monitors? I read that it might despite the fact that trading software is not 3D but 2D. Thanks for any help Gurus!

you will not need the power of a 2700k
one single AMD eyefinity card will provide enough connectors for your monitors , but it might be cheaper to use two bottom end cards SLI or crossfire are for gaming . You dont need it
