Hi all, would appreciate advice on my new (first time) build. The following is everything I intend to include but would appreciate input as to any issues w/ compatibility, better options, etc.
Purchase Date: ASAP
Budget: ~$1800 USD not including monitor
System usage: primarily securities trading w/ multi-tasking and many charts, windows, etc. open at once. Will use 3 monitors now w/ option for a 4th. Also will be used as home pc w/ little gaming and general usage.
Not needed: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers
Overclocking: yes, but maybe not immediately. Once I'm up & running and all groovy I'll start overclocking...would like to get in the 4.5 range to rival fastest pre-built trading computers like those from Falcon Trading.
Many of these parts were chosen with both function AND silence in mind. Also, trading is my job, so I want to build a great pc that will be somewhat future proof and only require marginal tinkering until it's completely outdated. With that in mind I, I know some of the parts are overkill - like the HAF X. I don't need that much space, but it's roomy and easy to work in, QUIET, COOL, and upgradable for whatever I could need.
Soooooo.....fast, stable, quiet, and cool is what I want!
Thanks in advance for any input you all have. Cheers!
Drop the WD 640's for Samsung F3 1tb. Same price, actually $5 cheaper for the same performance and larger capacity. Don't let the 6gb/s vs 3gb/s fool you, the WD can't perform anywhere near 3gb/s anyway.
