or Do I have to get a dual GPU ?

OK then ....what about the G74sx-A1?

Will that do the job? Streaming IB TWS Futures data into Chartrader ...!!

Thanks.

No it will not, the NVIDIA GPUs nly run two displays at any given time, the only notebook cards that can handle more are the AMD Radeon cards that support Eyefinity, which in the ROG line is only the original G73JH which runs a 5870M. The other way to carry extra monitors is to use those USB->VGA video cards with Displaylink chips, but the performance of those cards is even worse than Intel chips. They are about $40 each, so two extra monitors would be at least an extra $100 over the price of the monitors. Still, 4 monitor setup must be sweet. :cool:

if only AMD Radeon will work, check out Samsung 7 Series coming out with the AMD 7970M, suppose to be a beast.

Or lobby ASUS for a G75VH :cool: Would so much prefer the quiet design of the G-series to the noise of anyone else. Still, I have seen the Samsung notebooks, and they have some nice design chops. Not quite ROG mind you, but nice nonetheless.

You could use the Matrox Tripplehead.

The person that asked this question hasn't even logged in for nearly a year. I'm quite certain they've found their answer and moved on by now. If you guys want to discuss laptop multi-mon I would recommend a new thread.
