Greetings all:


I'm looking for some ideas on hardware requirements for a now trading platform. I will be driving multiple monitors; 2 to start but ultimately up to 8. I will have a separate install of MetaTrader running on each monitor rather than trying to span the monitors with one application launched. Is MetaTrader more CPU intensive or graphics card intensive or both?


Any ideas or recommendations will be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

I have not found MT4 to particularly resource hungry in any regard.

Obviously this would change if your were to add some very unwieldy logic triggered by the start() function of your EA with each tick.


We currently run 10 instances of the platform on a 2GB/Single Processor/Dual Core PC which runs 4 monitors without any issue.
