I have put together 12 monitor system & everything seems to be working fine except I need help detecting & identifying & managing 12 monitors & get them to do what I built it for.

I have built this system for stock market trading & I will be running a main application that has 12 windows which I can detach & put each of them on a separate monitor.

I am running windows-7 ( 64 bit ) & other specs are as follows.

It is a Dell Workstation T -7500 which I upgraded with Custom Graphics cards to do necessary tasks.

Intel Xeon E5645 @ 2.4 GHz

It has 3 ATI FirePro 2460 Video cards each of them have 4 output ports & thus handles 12 monitors in total.

I2 GB DRR3 ECC RAM

12 Identical Dell ( U2412M ) 24 inch monitors ( 1920X1200 )

Here is what I have now & what I would like it to do.

I have arranged 12 monitors in two rows of six each.

Windows-7 identifies 12 monitors but labels only 10 monitors with numbers 1 to 10 & shows two monitors without numbers in display property. ( See attachment )

They are given random 12 numbers in each row & I can?t rearrange them starting with number one in bottom right corner & number 12 in Top right corner.

I am having trouble locating mouse in each monitor. I would like to point the mouse cursor in any monitor at will which I can?t do now.

I would like to detach & drag 12 windows from main application to the desired monitor.

I am willing to Buy any special multi monitor software if you guys know that can do the job.

Thanks much in advance.

Funny I came across this thread because I am trying to do the same thing myself with a 10 monitor setup. My question is are there any other cheaper graphics cards that have 4 outputs? I don't need them to be powerful because I am only running a presentation in powerpoint.

Based on the screenshots of the control centre it looks super easy to setup if all monitors are the same.

Although tbh, I dont understand why all the monitors arent sitting side by side on the windows monitor setup if they are all teh same size and res. weird

Why do you need 12?
