Perfect for day trading stocks, as I use:

  • The 31.5 inch Samsung display to look at charts for what I'm planning to trade
  • The 21.5 inch LG display (stacked at the bottom) to look at SPY on a 1 and 5 minute time frame
  • The 24 inch BenQ display (stacked at the top) to have various market scanners
  • The 13 inch internal screen will be used for Option Flow data/Discord/Spotify

Also great for programming, as I use:

  • The 31.5 inch Samsung display for what I'm currently coding
  • The 21.5 inch LG display (stacked at the bottom) to look at references (e.g. Stackoverflow)
  • The 24 inch BenQ display (stacked at the top) to look at documentation for the API I'm working with
  • The 13 inch internal screen for Discord/Spotify

@adisai1, Welcome aboard and thank you for sharing this nice build! We need to see more non-gaming use of eGPU and multiple screens for day trading is an excellent example.
