Thanks again James for your generous help.

Is there anything to do to allocate more resources to Windows and or graphic card?

How can I test the resource level?

Download GPU-z and check the usage level while this is occurring.

If you get a drop in voltage to the GPU you should actually crash. This sounds more like a resource issue.

EDIT:And your PSU should be providing more than enough power for your system.

Hello Martin, sorry I haven't gotten back until now.
Were you able to figure out how to use it? The second tab, Sensors, should show you what you what you are looking for. Take snips of the different tabs under different scenarios. 1 for stable usage and 1 while the display gets choppy.

Here is a screen capture of two period
1- Graphic was OK

GPU-Z is showing actual data, not the max and min

Hmm, by the graph it looks like that are some spikes on the core clock and the voltage. I would be interested in seeing the minimum, while the choppiness is not occurring and the maximum while the choppiness is observed. If you click on the labels, there are options to show minimum, maximum, current, and average. Please try and capture the minimums and maximums.

OK
Since it is choppy now, I will capture the value. When stable, I will capture again

Okay, well your usage is definitely spiking on the GPU, and you say you are only viewing trading boards when this happens? Are your gpu drivers up to date? And did you try alternately disconnecting the GPU fed monitors and then the USB adapter fed monitors? And do you have the availability(free vga ports) on your USB adapter to connect all of the monitors to that?
