I used this company if it helps

http://www.multiplemonitors.co.uk/

They made my computer with all the specs I desired, plus all the software I wanted installed, including Microsft Office.
They also provided my stands and 4 additional screens.

A guy called Darren was in charge. I was delighted at the cost, plus the service was great

I see that DisplayFusion is free for 30 days so that's something to check out when I get the desktop. I take it you still need a quad compatible graphics card?

Nah don't think so. You can use it on a laptop screen if you so wish. May as well try the free 30 days and see if it works for you

Cheers. Do you mind me asking if there was anything trading-specific that you needed from the specs?

A very practical tip: pay attention to the position of the buttons on the screens. I bought a couple that had their buttons on the bottom. Because of this the top two monitors have to be slightly in front of the bottom ones. It looks butt ugly.

The display fusion means you can split the screen however you want, you can set it to 40 mini monitors if you really wanted to.
The way I use display fusion is I have different screen set ups for different sports I trade.

The windows functionality just lets you snap the screen into 2 or 4 but it's not flexible at all.

Thanks garycowlam I had a play about with it in the last few days and it definitely looks like something I will use going forward, I also like your tip of using a curved tv instead of monitors but they are hard to get hold of in a reasonable size anymore.
My existing 22” monitors (3 off) take up almost as much room as my Samsung 50” tv in my lounge though and my eyes aren’t getting any better as I get older so I’ll probably go for a 49” curved screen.

Yeah make sure its 4k and you won't have any issues. You'll have to tinker with the settings to get it perfect. I wouldn't go back to having multiple monitors anymore.
