Day Trading PC/Computer

Here you can find a well compiled Day Trading PC/Computer (updated October 2018).


We prefer a self-built system with good and less expensive parts. With low quality and unproven parts you will get major problems and troubles by and by. From our own experiences and money wasted on instable hardware we recommend only high quality parts for any price point.

  • This is a perfect Day Trading or Stock Trading PC which is optimized for exactly that.
  • has very fast shipping, great support and warranty policies.
  • These are carefully selected parts. That means that we tried to find and pick the best award-winning, high quality, long lasting parts with the longest warranties in the market.

For the computer chase we chose "NZXT S340 Mid Tower Computer Case":

For the motherboard we recommend "MSI Arsenal Gaming Intel Coffee Lake B360 LGA 1151 DDR4 Onboard Graphics CFX Micro ATX Motherboard":

The Core i7 8700 is actually the best processor for this kind of Day Trading PC:

High quality RAM will help you to avoid problems and instability. We can recommend "Corsair CMK16GX4M2A2666C16 Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4 2666 MHz C16 XMP 2.0 High Performance Desktop Memory Kit":

For the video card we chose "NVIDIA Quadro P600":

We recommend 2 hard drives because we often create a backup on the second one but that is up to you. The "Samsung 960 EVO NVMe M.2 SSD" would be a good choice:

A high quality power supply will make the whole system much more stable. So we chose "Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Unit":

As the operating system we recommend "Windows 10 Pro 64bit":

Gaming keyboards and mice are along the best keyboards on the market. The ultimate form and function along with supreme comfort. We chose "Razer Ornata Chroma" and "Razer Taipan Expert Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse":

We personally prefer Bose speakers to enjoy a good sound for music and games while trading but that is up to you. Here you can can find two suggestions, "Bose ® Companion ® 50 Multimedia Speaker System" or "Bose ® Companion ® 20 Multimedia Speaker System":

For a perfect Day Trading PC you should buy a monitor with at least a 1920x1080 resolution and VESA mounts. We can recommend "LG 27UD68P 27 inch monitor":
