    Question Workstation/PC with 3 dual graphics cards? Any ideas?

    I need to spec a workstation to connect 6 screens...... Not for me though.

    I am thinking that i am going to need a machine with 3 dual dvi graphics cards of reasonable power. It will need to run Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate 64bit and have about 6 or 8GB of RAM and around 1TB of HDD. Minimum I5 CPU and 3 years onsite warranty...

    Now I have never been asked to spec such a machine but ideally need to buy a branded machine off the shelf in the UK rather than a bespoke order or build it myself.

    Has anybody bought anything like this before or can point me in the direction of such a supplier..?

    Thanks..

    Just done a quick google ...

    Here's UK supplier for 6 screen setup
    Six Monitor PC, Intel Core i7 Computer | Multiple Monitors

    I'd think you'd need a fairly powerful CPU for this app.. Your client must work for the 'city' in the stock exchange.. about the only place I've seen this set up or maybe needing a control computer running a power generator station

    Thanks

    Might try this as well, quite a few options:

    Multiple Monitor Computers

    Best of luck.
