New Trading Computer build

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

Origin: USA

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.

Here's is my intended parts list:

Case: Coolermaster Haf X

Mobo: Asus p8p67 Deluxe

CPU: Intel Sandy Bridge 2600K

GPU: SAPPHIRE 100283FLEX Radeon HD 5770 FleX 1GB 128-bit GDDR5...chose this one so I can run 3/4 monitors from a single card. Monitors will be 2 X Dell U2311h and 1 X HP w2207h

PSU: Corsair HX Series 850W 80 Plus Silver

SSD (Programs drive): Crucial RealSSD C300 64GB SATA III

HDD (2X): WD Caviar Black 640 GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0 GB/s

Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB CL8

Optical Drive (2X): Lite-On 24X DVD Writer w/ Lightscribe

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium Full Edition

Cooler: Thermalright Archon

Final notes:
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I want to build a great pc that will be somewhat future proof and only require marginal tinkering until it's completely outdated.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., stable, quiet, and cool is what I want!

Thanks in advance for any input you all have. Cheers!

  1. I realized that about the psu and have downgraded that. Thx for the input and the heads up on the combo deal.

    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.

    Personally I'd keep the i7. but would use the AsRock p67 extreme4 motherboard.
