800$ day trading build

Approximate Purchase Date: this month

Budget Range: 800-1000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: will be used soley for day trading

Parts Not Required: Need everything.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any online retailer is fine, newegg is preferred.

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: I would like it to have an intel processor, I want it to provide support for 4 monitors (20-22inch).

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: If needed?

Monitor Resolution: whatever is best for 20-22inch :S

Additional Comments: My brother asked me to build a computer for his day trading. I normally only build Gaming computers and just recently got into it. So fairly new to the whole thing, which is why I'm looking for some help. :) His only request was for the PC to be able to support 4 monitors 20, or 22 inches. He said he will only be using it for trading so doesn't need to be anything to fancy.. Thanks in advance.

Here's what I came up with any suggestions would be helpful... It's a bit overpriced so anything that might lower that please thx.

More about trading build
  1. Newish to building myself, but I would suggest you look into an ATI eyefinity card with support for up to 6 monitors. I think something like a 5770 would work, but I can't find one off hand with the multiple display ports but I'm sure it exists. Also, I would suggest using a Raid 1, 10, or 5 array, if he's trading he probably will keep information on the machine that isn't cheap to lose. The rest I would find by finding cheaper mainstream components (AMD Propus CPU, Asus entry level board, few green HDD, the 5770, and kingston value ram and he should be set!)
  2. Just hit an IGP chipset and a Radeon class discrete and voila!
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/300700-31-help-4monitor-1000-range
  3. haha the tricky part was including the 4 monitors with-in this price range... :/
  4. I believe you will have to change your CPU or motherboard choice as one is socket 775 (CPU) and the other is LGA1156 (Mobo).
  5. with the $500 for the monitors, I'll suggest you shoudl look at a AMD athlon solution:

    Athlon II X2 250: $58
    Mushkin 4 GB DDR3: $45
    MSI 880 mobo: $75
    500 GB HDD: $50
    Rosewill R101 microATX case: $30
    hd5770: $140
    Sea Sonic 430w 80+ Bronze PSU: $55

    $450

    This should be able to run 3 monitors at least. an X3 450 for $79 gives a little more horsepower
  6. A system for five display outputs, 'normal' hd5770's only support 3 monitors:

    CPU: AMD Athlon II x3 450 3.2GHz - $79.00
    Mobo: ASRock 880GMH/USB3 - $81.99
    RAM: GSkill Ripjaws 2x2Gb DDR3 1333MHz - $54.99
    GPU: PowerColor HD5770 1Gb DDR5 Eyefinity 5 Edition - $219.99
    HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1Tb 7200rpm - $69.99
    DVD: Samsung DVD Burner - $17.99
    PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W - $64.99
    Case: Cooler Master Elite 341 - $39.99

    Grand Total: $628.93 + $500 monitors = $1130,-
