I am putting together a Desktop for watching stock market charts.
I will be connecting 12 Monitors ( Dell U2412M x 24 inch, 1920x1200 ) to this desktop.

Mostly I will be using 2 stock applications & couple of Word Docs & some webpages simultaneously.

OS will be Windows -7 ( Ultimate )

I will be using three ATI FirePro 2460 Graphics cards. ( I did a lot of research & chose these Low Profile cards ) AMD has specifically designed these cards for stock market applications & are used by many professionals.

I am not sure but Intel i7 2600 3.4 GHz processor should be enough ?

I am thinking about 8 GB GB DDR3 RAM

I need one DVD-RW

I guess Onboard Sound would be good enough.

Although I don’t have a budget restriction & want to build the best system, I am limited to the parts available where I am located. So you guys need to pick the parts from the following 2 websites. I am importing graphics cards since they are not available here.


Thank You all.

Those cards will work fine, very similar to the ones I suggested when answering you last topic, http://www.geekstogo...44#entry2060944

I said there, you might need more cooling in the case.

A 2500K would do the job well.

On-board sound will be OK.

You will need to check RAM computability from the Mobo manufacturers website on there QVL list.

What happened to the new PC you just bought, the Dell XPS 8300, did you ditch it?

I think you have tied up the volunteer resources on enough sites with this question to get the answers you need. Understand, as volunteers, our resources are limited and so duplication of effort is inefficient, and takes away from others needing assistance. "Shotgun posting" the same question across the same and multiple sites, therefore is considered "poor forum etiquette". Therefore. I am closing this thread.
