Summary: We used this for our display booth computer to show images or video across multiple (4) displays. This card works great for this purpose. We created a PowerPoint presentation to show across those monitors and that worked for us as well.
Summary: It's a decent card. I like the fanless design. It will be fine for trading. First suggestion; read through the reviews here. Ybeard and others have really explored the depths of this card's connectivity, which is why I decided on this card.
Summary: I consider this to be the best value graphics card on the market for trading computer setup.This card supports a multi-monitor functionality.DVI to mDP passive adapters included.AMD has told me you do not need more expensive active adapters as long as the monitors are identical.
Summary: If you need to drive multiple 2560 x 1440 (or 1600) monitors you either need a dual dual-link DVI card or (at least) dual displayport. You don't have many choices to start off with and if you want a quiet passively cooled card, this one is pretty much the only game in town.
Summary: Hi Folks, This is a non-review of the ATI FirePro. I just bought a new Win7 tower (Intel Core i7). I've used 2-3 monitors (now 4) for >20 years as a stock trader and academic. I strongly considered the ATI FirePro, but decided to go with two cheap video cards from ASUS.
It works, even Linux, but the drivers for Linux are weak

Summary: While this card supports Linux, the ATI Catalyst drivers for LInux are weak. Why do I say that? 1) must reboot between almost any change in configuration, 2) must turn off the "one desk" top feature to rearrange displays (require a reboot), 3) only worked under Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome--Mint LInux...
Summary: I bought this card so I could run 3-4 monitors in an extended desktop setup (non-gaming), with each one working independently from the other. I have windows 7 64 bit and dealing with windows and graphics cards, I was expecting the setup to be difficult and time consuming with the requisite calls to...
Great card for multiple monitors BUT you must buy 2 adapters

Summary: We use two of these cards in an HP Z400 workstation and it will suport 8 monitors. This is for business applications, not for gaming. There is definantly one issue here though. For me at least, to get 4 monitors up and running, you must buy some additional adapters.
