Best One stop shop in the UK is Trading Computers & Multi Screen Arrays | Multiple Monitors
They will do the whole thing, with various specifications mostly Intel based i3/i5/i7. Seems quite good if you are new to whole thing.
As for laptops, Acer 8943G comes with 2.4Ghz/i5 +4GB/ memory +BluRay and a nice big 18.4" screen, seems more keenly priced than Dell and some of the others. I believe if you search you can also pick up an international warranty as well. AcerDirect do a good price on that

I am selling a four monitor setup (ready for eight monitors) as I have moved to a laptop based setup for my trading.

Absolutely, If you are running standard trading applications. There may be a problem with the PC/OS being able to cope If you try to run HD Blue rays at the same time but if you get bored you can always watch a low res DVD, that shouldn't take up too much hungry resource.

The benchmark score on that video card is so poor that I would be surprised if it supported color...just kidding, but that card is about 8 years old is EXTREMELY weak. It will not support 1080p monitors...

For $50 US you can buy a MUCH more powerful video card that will support high definition, blu ray, 1080p and both VGA, DVI and HDMI monitors..

Newegg.com - XFX HD-467X-ZDFR Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Please don't waste your money on low end stuff!
