    I want to setup a tradingStation with 4 monitors on Windows XP.

    I have no idea on how to start. Should I use one AGP and one PCI graphics? If yes, witch ones?

    Sorry my english.

    Wait for reply.

  2. Your video cards can only be what's on your motherboard.

    Do you have an AGP or PCIE mobo? Do you have PCI slots available? Or, does your mobo have "integrated video"?

    I will buy a new computer, should I buy motherboard with an integrated graphic or should I buy a motherboard without?

    Witch is the best solution?

    Best Regards.
  4. Buy yourself a Dell Precision Workstation . . . the T3400 to be exact!

    You'll be happy you did.
  5. Without integrated, definitely.

    T34000 have one dual graphics video card. I need 4 monitors. With this T34000 it is only need to buy another PCI- Express x16 graphics video card to have my setub complete?

  7. Correct. The T3400 has 2, PCIEx16 slots... most mobos have only 1. You can order it with a 2nd NVS 290 PCIEx16 for an additional $80. That's a good price, too.

    Safer to order with XP Pro.

    Good luck.
