What it Takes to be a Great Stock Trading Computer
If you’re still using the PC that you purchased at an electronics store around the corner for your day trading, then you are in a world of trouble. You may have stayed in the game this long without a top computer for traders, but you can’t predict that it will remain the same. As times continue to change, it is required that you keep up by upgrading your stock trading computer to handle the new and emerging software. You can obtain a customized computer for traders that have all of the proper components to make your day trading go effortlessly. Clicking around on an old Windows XP system with an AMD or Core Duo processor isn’t going to cut it. You’ll need to upgrade everything from your operating system to your graphics card.
Then if you’re currently using a laptop for your day trading, you’ll want to switch over to a desktop computer, since it is able to handle all the power that’s needed and can connect multiple monitors. But not just any desktop will give you want you want. You will need to go through a manufacturer that specializes in making computers for day traders. They can be found online and can provide you with the top notch equipment for your trading setup.
What it takes to be a great stock trading computer is for it to have lots of memory RAM, fast processing speeds, sufficient hard drive space, high definition graphics cards and multiple monitor connection capabilities. The monitors that you purchase for your trading computer should all be done at one time, so that you can ensure that they are all the same model. Not only will it make your setup look good, but it will ensure that they all work accordingly. The preferred monitors should be from top brands like Samsung and Asus. You will also need a high definition graphics card, preferably from ATI, like the FirePro 2460 OCle 2.0x16.
Combine all of these with a terabyte or more of hard drive space, an i7 and sufficient memory RAM and you have yourself the Rolls-Royce of computers. Packing all of this heat, you will need cooling fans that will prevent your computer from overheating and crashing. This might sound like a lot of money, but it doesn’t have to be. However, there are web sites out there that build custom trading computers, but they overcharge and don’t even give you all of the up-to-date components that you’ll need. With that being said, you will need to do as much research as you can before purchasing, to ensure that you’re indeed getting the best of the best for your day trading.
