After constant battles with my better half, we have decided to purchase a special computer solely dedicated to trading. My question is : What components should it have in order for it to run super smoothly??? ) I was thinking of the following: 1. Good old pentium 4 - cheap and fast enough. 2. 2 to 4 gig of RAM - to be on the safe side. 3. 200 gig hard drive - Barracuda with 5 year warranty 4. A video card that will allow 2 to 4 monitor hook up. 5. cd/dvd drive - something from pioneer 6. USB and Firewire connections - just in case 7. Windows XP pro - original Price = less than $1000 Any comments, suggestions, remarks and ideas are eagerly anticipated.
