Multi-Monitor Day Trading Computer Work Station
I use to run my work station with 3 Lenovo Gaming Laptops, but I’ve recently made the change to Falcon computers. I’ve been really happy with my Lenovo’s but I was due for an update.
I use a separate computer for my trading so the keyboard is always at the ready to execute trades. This is especially helpful on breaking news.
The primary reason I use two computers instead of one is because I need to be able to live stream and trade at the same time and I don’t want to take any bandwidth away from my day trading computer.
- Lenovo Y50 with i7-4700HQ @ 2.40Ghz
- 32GB RAM
- 256GB solid state hard drive
- Nvida GeForce GTX 860M
I recently switched to a Falcon laptop, which are made specifically for day trading. I currently have the Falcon F-10 and F-30 laptop.
The Falcon F-10 specifications are as follows:
- i7 Intel 6-core 2.6 GHz Processor
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 4GB GDDR6 Graphics Card
- DDR4 32GB RAM
The Falcon F-30 specifications are as follows:
- i7 Intel – 10700k 3.8GHz Processor
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 6GB GDDR6 Graphics Card
- DDR4 64GB RAM
External USB Video Cards
Diamond USB to HDMI video cards allow me to run up to 6 monitors per laptop on my Lenovo. This gives me the multi-monitor setup I run. You can check these out on Amazon. For the Falcon’s you can run 2 4k monitors each.
I have 6 monitors between 23″ and 25″. I also have a 20″ monitor for my broker platform and a television for watching CNBC during the day.
