Multi-Monitor setup?

Ok..

Im finally going with the multi-monitor setup..

How should I go about it? Im in the market for a new PC anyways..

I need something fast.. I dabble in the ForEX market, and thats what the Desktop will be used for..

Any suggestions for under say a grand? Used?

Well here ya go:

My old setup (I still have the monitors I may be willing to sale):

Dual Viewsonic VA902b 19" LCD's


Then I bought my Dell's 21" Widescreens and decide wtf lets try 4 at once:


Well needless to say, as sweet as it was I had no room left on my desk. So I am using the 2 Dell's by themselves now.


If you are interested in the Viewsonics let me know.

haha. sorry been helping a friend with his iphone. all those setups are using dual xfx nvidia 7950 gt. they aren't the best. but for the most part my gaming is done on the 360 now so it aint a big deal. those cards have 512 MB each and are pretty affordable.
