Hi, I have decided to build a new rig as the one I have is getting dated. Below is a list of components that I have selected. It will be used only for trading and backtesting, running TWS, neoticker and Excel on two monitors(22" and 19"). I may add another card and put two more monitors on it later. Anyways I would like if some experts could give me some feedback on the set up as I have not kept up on the new hardware. Total cost as of now is about $1000 CAD/ $900usd. All prices are Canadian.

I have to confirm the memory will work with the board but i believe it is supported. If some of the tech whiz's here could give me some feed back I would appreicate it. Andrew Edit: scratch the xp pro x64 as it looks like it will not work with Core 2 Duo chips.
