A good 500w PSU would work for you but if you ever plan on going crossfire then you would need something around 700-750w.

I would go with 2x2GB for now and then if you see you are running out you can buy another kit of the same and take it to 8GB but I think 4GB would be good.

For gaming 4 gb is usually recommended and for psu a corsair 750tx would be good, that way you could have room fire xfire in the future

Since your using heavy multi-tasking for trades. I'd bump up to at least 8GB. Depending on how much resources your doing at once. Being short on RAM can mean the difference between missing the instant change in the market situation. Depending on how much money you have invested if your computer hung due to not enough RAM and market just dropped 3-5 points or more, how much could you have just lost? If this was a gaming only rig then you could prob get away with 4GB. As 90% of the posters on here seems to be gaming centric I would not rely on a gamer saying how much RAM is needed. For your case I'd recommend between 8-16GB.

PSU I'd also recommend a 750, but do yourself a favor DO NOT get a Corsair 750TX. Get a Corsair 750HX. Modular psu is FAR GREATER than non-modular.

8-16 gb just for trading money..? rofl. also, Modular isn't even worth the extra money in most cases if your doing cable management anyways, its not like its going to kill you by taking the time to hide the extra cable or two.

As stated, it would depend on what resources he has and how much multi-tasking he is really doing. The other MAJOR thing is to do a cost benefits analysis. If adding $200 more RAM saves from losing $15,000+. God dam right get 16GB of RAM. And I and probably just about the entire world that has any cash will gladly spend $20 to have the cabling right to begin with.

Please don't get a TX750.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371025 is better and cheaper.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371026 is about as good and much cheaper.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817207003 is much better and costs the same.
