Additional Comments: stock trader. I don't play any games. Currently have a pentium D 2.8 2g desktop with a nividia gforce 9500gt (for two monitors).
It is not getting the job done.
Broker platform runs good, but my other charting program (silverlight) freezes up. It did even before installing the gpu just worse now.
My laptop is core 2 duo 2.2 w/3g ram and it runs the silverlight charting program ok.
I have sattelite internet. Slow even though it is the fastest wildblue has.
I am wanting to get modern. I will want to upgrade the old desktop, but later. Want to put together a new machine.
Hd storage is minimal
Like the idea of being able to run a third monitor.
Like the i3 builds i've read on the forum.
Could i run my gpu AND the integrated graphics with the i3 to use more than two monitors?
I'm not sure how much benefit i will realize with the sattelite internet.
Would love to get some feedback in the form of build examples to get me started.
i would look at something like this. you could get an i3-3225 and use the HD 4000 graphics but it would only run 1 monitor. the 6670 should be able to run 3 monitors. this is assuming your willing to order from more then just amazon. if it all has to be from amazon it will have to be changed.
