So I am in the process of building a Daytrading Computer that will support 4 monitors at 1920 x1200 resolution. I never game on the computer so don't need anything too fancy for that. I will be running a couple of live 'livestream' feeds through Firefox, a couple charting programs with probably 20-25 charts up total on 3 of the monitors which all have live feeds obviously throughout the trading day. So I probably should have came here first before placing my initials orders but I went ahead and have started ordering the following parts for this build -
HDD - ???? 1 TB - hoping for a deal to pop up real soon.
OS - Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit - will be $25 since I get the 'Student' rate Ordering this weekend.
Wireless adapter - can someone reccomend a good one? For the time being where this computer will be going can only access the internet via wireless and that scares me a bit due to needing a stable connection while I am trading! Please let me know what would be a good card for this build.
Multicard Reader - Can you reccomend one for me? Alot of mixed reviews on them.
???? - what am I forgetting to buy??
Now, I know I will need another video card but 2 monitor setup will be OK for now until I find a deal on a 2nd card. Also - would you advise me to get another 4GB of ram so I would have 8 GB total or will 4GB be good for now? I plan to ventually add another 4 GB of ram at a later time. I already have a keyboard/mouse laying around.
Everything I have linked to Newegg I have just purchased today so no turning back. Does this build look adequate for what I am trying to use it for? I also used the Neweggs combo deals for some nice reduction is some of the prices. Right now I am $590 after all applicable rebates and including the OS. I could afford to purchase a 2nd vid card as well as another set of RAM if you think I should do so to get it done with? Would a 2nd HDD be wise for backups?
So I just saw this link in another thread - http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine - and did my maxed out version of what my system could end up being someday and it recommended 607W PSU - I ordered a 600W PSU - how accurate is that website and will my 600W PSU be ok running my system or will I need to eventually upgrade to the likes of a 750W? Thanks again for any help and replies!
