Please Help $800 Trading computer

Hello, I day trade so I want to build a trading computer. My budget is around $800.

This is what I was planning on building. But after reading some info it looks like the x6 core is not that good and Intel i5 build might be better.

Please let me know what you guys think.

Case
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
$69.99

Motherboard.

ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
$219.99

PSU
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 $109.99

CPU
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo $199.99

RAM
CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop $89.99

HD (This is for now, I was planning on getting Solid State in future.)
Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s $59.99

I wasn't sure about VIdeo card, So I didnt put one there.
With video card I do want to have GPU that supports 2 monitors and maybe in future add one more so it will support 4 monitors.

I have 24" monitor
I have the OS mouse and keyboard.

Thanks again

  1. Opening a few charts/graphs and putting in buy/sell orders over the internet is not very cpu-intensive, so either would do, but, given that the cost of the X6 rig is more than an i5-2500k/P67-based MB, I'd lean towards the Intel based rig...
  2. Best answer
    Just about all gpus support 2 monitors, but, if contemplating more than 2 monitors, I'd be looking at AMD's gpus exclusively.....
  3. Thanks for the reply. I want to get a MB that I will be able to add another video card to it in future. I just wasn't sure if I should go with AMD or Inter.
  4. With Eyefinity AMD card, you don't need a very powerful card to drive 4 monitors. Will you be gaming at all? If it's all work related, get something like 2 of these (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161367&cm_re=5450-_-14-161-367-_-Product) for an easy 6 monitor setup. If you ever plan on gaming, things will be different.
  5. I decided, I will get change CPU MB and video card
    Intel i5 2500k

    MSI P67A-G43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130583

    GIGABYTE GV-R645OC-1GI Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low

    and everything else will stay the same
  6. looks good, but keep in mind that it will only support 3 monitors. You will need to grab a second for the 4th monitor.
  7. Thanks, For now I am planning to buy just two 22" and then later on will add another card.
