  1. Aside from the processor, that seems to be the most asked question in various threads. Perhaps we can assemble the opinions/recs here?

    Nvidia Quadro NVS 295 or NVS 300. These are passively cooled (quiet) workstation graphics cards that support two 30" monitors @ 2560 x 1600 resolution.

    NVS 295 (256MB):

    NVS 300 (512MB):

    Thought this might be a good thread to ask this: I have a new Dell with AMD Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3 video card - it will run 2 monitors. I need to run 4...is it easier/cheaper to add another card that will run 2 or replace this card with one that will run 4?
  4. If you have the slots/space to run 2 cards then if you have a problem you still have a couple of monitors. The other issue would be how much each card draws energy wise relative to your power supply.

  6. That 295 looks perfect for me (6x Dell U2412M using DP). Do you have any direct experience with it?
  7. I've been using NVSs since 280... 295s for the last 5 years... 4-6 monitors. Perfect for multi-monitor trading.
  8. Thanks Scat.
