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.

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!)

I believe you will have to change your CPU or motherboard choice as one is socket 775 (CPU) and the other is LGA1156 (Mobo).

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
