      I want to create this Set-up for my Equity, Commodity, Forex and Binary Options  Trading business where I need to manage lots of critical transactions at once — and that often means multiple displays. That means applications have to present lots of Tables, Charts, and Graphs — each in their own windows, and all at a glance.


      There will be NO Video Games, Graphics or Video Editing work at all on this Set-up.


      If possible, occasionally would like to watch Movies in the “Eye Infinity” Display Set-up (but, this is strictly secondary).


      To start with I plan to purchase 4, 24 inch Monitors & then expand the Set-up to 6 in the future (all to work in Extended Display as well as Eye Infinity).


      The resolution I plan to use on each of my prospective 24 inch Monitor is 1920 x 1200p.


      On 1 of the monitors, I plan to have a Live feed of the Television Channel when I execute trades based on my NEWS based trading strategy.


      Following are my queries:-

      1) Can the Four Monitor Array (2 x 2) expandable to Six Monitor Array (3 x 2) be created on my existing Graphic Card?

      2) If Yes, what will I have to do for it?

      3) If No, then what will be the most ideal solution to achieve my goal?

      4) Any other details you people wish that I should know regarding the matter!


      Waiting for your responses


      Thanks in advance!
