Up to 12 Monitors Supported
You have complete control over the component selection process. We provide a broad variety of multi-monitor video card options that fit within every budget. The basic specifications to consider for your trading computer's video card (also known as GPU) are the number of monitors supported (up to 12 on all Trader X1000s), the types of output ports they have (DVI, VGA, Display Port, etc.), and if they have active or passive (silent) cooling solutions. Fortunately, trading doesn't require the extremely powerful and expensive GPUs often found on high-end gaming or CAD computers, as trading work is generally two-dimensional. The majority of intensive processing has already been done by your CPU/RAM system, meaning the GPU just has to output those results. However, if you're planning on streaming around 30 or more charts, it would be advisable to take a GPU option marked as 'high-performance' on the configure page for the increased VRAM capacity. Contact us for help deciding which GPU is right for your needs.
