I have a buddy who does financial trading and wants 8 or 9 monitors setup on a new-build computer. Well, probably 1080p HDMI televisions since you can get a 32" TV for about the same price as a 28" monitor, and all he needs to do is look at charts, so fine dot pitch isn't a big requirement. The computer will be a basic i5, 16 gigs of RAM, 120gb SSD type of setup running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. I'm not sure what the best route is to go for the video card. For $300, I can get 3 GT640's, which have 2 DVI and 1 HDMI (they support 4 monitors out each, but the 4th is VGA so meh): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121643 Or perhaps go with an Eyefinity setup, but active Mini/Displayport adapters to HDMI can add up price-wise, plus cards with more than 4 ports of any kind get really pricey really fast. It's not a super budget project (so it doesn't necessarily need to be on the cheap side), but the charts run off Java or something, so they don't really require much horsepower. We tested a USB to DVI video card, but it was too laggy, so we need at least some kind of GPU. We also tested integrated HD3000 and that worked OK. So 3 GT640's, all dual-bay, setup on a board like this is what I'm thinking right now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157336 So in theory, that would give me the ability to run up to 9 digital displays using (3) HDMI and (6) DVI to HDMI cables. I can't think of a cheaper or easier setup to go with, but I don't do many multi-monitor setups like this so I figured I'd ask!
