I want to know what components are recommended for a high-end trading computer. I would like to keep it around $3000, but could go higher. I realize that I can get a decent computer for far less money, but humor me. My primary concern is relative value- meaning I don't want to pay up for something that doesn't perform better. I want a system that can drive at least six monitors. During the trading day I run the following: Livevol X, often IB TWS and/or thinkorswim, charting software, a very large excel workbook that pulls real-time data on several hundred stocks, multiple firefox tabs, email, chat, webinar stuff, and sometimes videos. I want the system to run extremely fast. With that being said, I have a few questions: -Six core i7 processor or single/dual Xeon? -Air or liquid cooling? -Which motherboard, how many PCIe? -What brand/model/number of video cards? I recently put together a system that has the following: i7-3930k, ASUS Sabertooth x79, 32gb ram, dual Intel 520 240gb ssd, 2tb hdd, dual AMD 7850 cards. Am I on the right track? What substitutions should I make? It may be overkill, but I want a really nice rig. Thank you very much for your help.
