I'm a full-time day trader and I put very heavy loads on my machine with multiple trading platforms, running other multiple programs, and a screen capture recording my screens during market hours. I’m a very heavy multitasker and put heavy loads on my machine. I will NOT be using this PC for any gaming. It’s strictly a work PC for heavy multitasking and day trading. The trading programs I use are Think or Swim, Scanz, Stocks To Trade, and Etrade Pro.
I was informed today by a tech at Think or Swim (one of the main trading platforms I use) to use this link below in choosing a graphic card. He said to choose from the upper blue/green area since the platform is very demanding. So I chose the GeForce RTX 2070 but not sure if I made the best choice.
Monitors I currently have:
Two Acer S271 HL monitors https://www.cnet.com/products/acer-s271hl-led-monitor-full-hd-1080p-27/
One 40 Inch MU6290 4K TV https://www.samsung.com/us/televisions-home-theater/tvs/uhd-tvs/40-class-mu6290-4k-uhd-tv-un40mu6290fxza/.
I'm not currently using the MU6290 4K TV but may want to in the future. There's also slight possibility I may decided to get another MU6290 4K. If I do buy another one then the setup will be:
One Acer S271 HL monitor https://www.cnet.com/products/acer-s271hl-led-monitor-full-hd-1080p-27/
Two 40 Inch MU6290 4K TV https://www.samsung.com/us/televisions-home-theater/tvs/uhd-tvs/40-class-mu6290-4k-uhd-tv-un40mu6290fxza/.
The only thing missing from the build is the cooler which I ordered from Amazon and will have today.
I've read and heard so many conflicting things about this and I'm not sure what to do. I doubt I'll ever need more than 64GB but some say it's better to leave 2 slots open for a less expensive upgrade just in case.
It's also $60 less to get 2 sticks of 32GB vs 4 16GB but I'm mostly concerned about performance and if it will make a difference with the motherboard or anything else. Here's both options and the motherboard. Thank you.
Thank you again for your help!
