I am an active trader, and have recently made day trading my full-time job. As of now I have been working off a 17" laptop, which has served its purpose, but is no longer efficient to use and is really restricting my ability to make quick trades.
At any time I might have as many as 10-15 internet browsing windows open (chat rooms, social media, news sites, forums) as well as my trading platform, where I am constantly looking at different charts throughout the day.
I want to have one monitor dedicated to my web surfing, one monitor dedicated to my trading platform main screen (watchlists, scanners, portfolio position), and the other four monitors will each have a separate stock ticker with multiple time-frame charts with live quotes, level 2, time and sales, etc.
I don't do allot of gaming, but if I am going to have a nice 6-monitor set-up I would like to have the option of playing anything I want.
As of right now I will have to dedicate about $3k to the monitors and the monitor-stand alone, so I would like to spend no more than $3k on the computer itself. My only requirements is that it works very fast with absolutely no chance of any kind of crashing while I am trading. I also need very reliable WiFi.
I would greatly appreciate any help. I am not sure what kind of requirements/restrictions come into play when having a multi-monitor station, but I know that I am out of my realm here. Thanks in advance for any help!
