Need Help Building Computer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to buy a computer in the $1600 price range to be used mostly for forex programs such as StrategyQuant Pro which utilizes all processor cores and requires large amounts of ram, I would also like the option to use the system for gaming. It would be great if its quiet as well.

I have come up with a possible build and I am looking for any suggestions to the make the computer more faster and whether the hardware I have suggested would fit in the case?

I will be using Windows 8 Pro aswell, I didn't add it to the list because I already have it.

I didn't add a Hard Drive because space isn't a real issue for me, I only require a small amount at the moment.

I would like to run the computer 24/7 and I am unsure of a safe level for overclocking if I was to do this.

Thanks!

You dont need 760 watts for that system

Unless you want two video cards and even then you can find better then the AX760

What are your thoughts about used PC parts? Do you have access to a microcenter?

I think you should look at going with a 6 core CPU. If your program can leverage the extra cores, it might be worth it.
