There's no doubt about it: AMD's Ryzen 7 is clearly the best choice for a multi-tasking, multi-window, multi-monitor environment. With 8 cores and 16 threads, it will keep you up and running all day long without a hitch. Is it the best gaming CPU on the market? Nope, but that's not what you're buying it for!
You want as many efficient cores as you can get, and the delivers them! You also get high-end audio, perfect for hooking up headphones to listen to the latest market report.
It even fully supports overclocking of the Ryzen 7 processor, although for stability and reliability purposes, we advise you keep that to a minimum while working! Note that the built-in video connectors on this motherboard will not be functional when used with a Ryzen processor, so please make sure to add the video card we recommend later in this guide. Let's be clear here: While you could fumble with adapters, chances are they won't work if you're running at over x, which you ought to be if you want to get serious trading done.
You're going to have tons of browser windows and apps open at once, and you're going to want to flip between them in an instant. That means you need lots of high-speed RAM. This DDR kit will do the trick! RAM has increased in price dramatically from mid through the end of , but prices have finally peaked and have begun falling.
That's great news for PC builders! During your trading hours, you're going to be downloading data every millisecond, and you need your data drive to keep up.
That means you don't just want an SSD, you want an ultra-fast SSD, with the lowest latency and fastest random access times possible. The Evo will deliver the performance you need at a reasonable price. There's no need for huge amounts of storage in a trading system; speed and reliability are what matter, and that's what you get with this drive.
For a PC case that's going to be sitting on a trading desk, three criteria must be met: No hulking towers with massive numbers of fans, no flashing lights, none of the things that gamers want.
SilverStone delivers with its ultra-compact SG10, which uses the micro ATX form factor and pushes it to its limits in terms of minimizing the system's footprint. While for some builds, that could be limiting, it's a perfect fit for this system, which uses a compact video card and an M.
You won't even need to use a single drive tray. This case comes with two mm fans one on the side, one in back , and a huge mm fan up top. The mm fans will be relatively quiet at their full RPM, but the mm fan should be run at its minimum setting to reduce noise, which can be set using the switch on the back of the case.
It offers mind-blowing Platinum-rated efficiency and plenty of power into an ultra-short mm chassis, which is ideal for the compact case you'll be using. Seasonic backs this unit up with an amazing year warranty. For a system that is likely to be powered on much of the day, that provides serious peace of mind! Windows 10 was a big step up from Windows 8. It truly is the only OS to consider. If you'd like to add an optical drive, you'll need to go with a slim slot-loading model.
Luckily, SilverStone has you covered with this model, which even includes all the adapters you'll need to connect it. Featuring the unique Cherry MX Silent switches, this keyboard combines the responsiveness of a true mechanical spring switch with the silence of a rubber dome model. It will make you type faster and more accurately so you never miss a critical keystroke. Most mechanical keyboards simply aren't suited to environments where you either share office space or use the phone regularly.
They're just too loud. Is it easy to justify spending this much money on a desk? It was an amazing desk. But it was HUGE! This was back when I had that ridiculous 6 monitor setup that required that kind of space.
The sub-woofer comes with a custom base plate to mount under the desk for a really clean look and helps with managing space and cables. My only complaint is the desktop surface. My best friend who will remain anonymous.. Evodesk had great customer service and shipped me a brand new desktop within the week at no charge!
Just make sure you get some coasters to avoid the hassle! Technically there is no right or wrong answer here. I buy all the components separately, and I put it all together myself. The main thing you need to keep in mind when building a PC is… how many monitors am I going to be using? When you know this you then need to pick the proper graphics card, or cards if you need two to handle how many monitors you are running.
These PCs are so sick I'm sure I'll be avoiding the hassle myself and using them when I'm ready to upgrade! As you can see on the card I have 4 inputs on this thing.
So I Can run up to 5 monitors --on this 1 card alone. You also need to make sure your monitors inputs match your cards. But you can always get adapters. It just means more cables and more mess. Core i7 k -Motherboard: And others for storage: I also have two 1tb hard drives for additional storage.
Corsair H80i Gt -Mouse: Apple Full size wired. Digital Storm Velox Price: One of the best things about having someone else put together a PC for you is that they do a great job with internal cable management. Which looks cool, reduces dust, increased airflow, and reduces heat to key components. Doing it yourself is a pain in the ass and you are not going to do it as good as they do. Digital Storm Apollo Price: Quite a bit cheaper, yet still a powerhouse with some awesome liquid cooling and lighting.
Liquid cooling is very important in heat and noise reduction. My first trading station was like trading next to a space-heater! Anyway, I digress, the Apollo comes with a powerful GTX Graphics card with the ability to run up to 5 monitors with ease. Corsair Dominator's are the best memory sticks out there!
Digital Storm Vanquish 5 Price: However, if you plan to keep it simple with your trading and you're on a budget than this PC is for you! So having a high-precision mouse to navigate through your trading platform, Level II, etc. If you want your mouse to look like that Bat-Mobile, and function just as well than look no further than the Logitech G For years Logitech has been releasing high-performance mice and the next model would only have slight improvements.
Not the case with the G! It's one of the lightest, smooth, highest-response time, wireless mouse ever created and did I mention it looks bad-ass? This is the mouse that I have been using for the last few years.
