Setup 6 Monitor’s To Your PC

Introduction

This is a tutorial on how to install 6 monitors onto a single PC. This tutorial can also be applied to various other installations that can get 8+ monitors if desired, by simply alternating the types of mounts, cards, or USB adapters used. I’ll take you step by step through the installation process, some of the problems that I came across, and how I solved each of these issues.

This was one of my monitor setups used for trading back in 2009 (bad market). So, I thought I would migrate the tutorial from my other website, over here. Please bare with me while I make some updates. Enjoy!

Here’s how my final setup looks:
