When I first started using a platform called NeoTicker, I noticed that it would take a lot of resources and use a lot of CPU processing after having only a few charts opened. There would be all kinds of conflicts with the OpenEcry OEC trader platform as well. Then NT admin sent me over to this thread: http://newsletter.neoticker.com/?p=175 I actually noticed a significant increase in performance after making the suggested modifications. OEC trader and NT can run together with almost no problems. I feel more confident in actually trading with NT. I figured that the tweaks offered in that article is just the tip of the iceberg. I was wondering what you guys were doing to get the most out of your windows operating systems? Particularly for running your different trading applications. Personally, I plan on using either NT or Multicharts for charting. Or maybe SierraChart. And the OEC ladder for trading. Please advise. My system is a P4 3.0 ghz, 2.0 gig ram, 128mb dual out nvidia video card. 4 screen stretch display.
