Is this CPU capable enough to run games like cs go? Asking cuz theres a MSI part!
the right tools make the job alot easier! Great upload ty GB!
Is there any free trading software with real time quotes? Thanks!
Surprised you didn't use an AMD processor with real cores and not theoretical hyperthreaded intel cores
For anyone looking this trades 3 monitors fine + games every game currently 🙂
gtx 970 (Thunder Master)
16GB DDR4 RAM (corsair)
SSD (Samsung Evo8)
how many monitors could this support?
Video card must be at least 256 bit. Your card 128.
is he a trader ?
hey I think you posted a wrong link for NVIDIA quadro in your parts list
please make sure before touching any components to get rid of all static electricity by touching some kind of metal like the case or a metal table etc.
Hey ! Where is clay ? At first i thought clay grown some beard.. 😂
One tip is to use 2 hard drives (or 2 partitions) if you plan to also use it as a personal computer. Then have one disk dedicated to trading only, no extra downloads, cruft, etc.. and reboot into the 2nd windows disk if you plan to use it for personal use.
im 15 i want To trade
Hey Clay can you also do video about what tablet is good for trading on the go. Most of the day I'm in the car. I would like to know if tablet or laptop would be good to use. Also, is ipad also good for trading? I'm also curious if you can pimp a car and make a trademobile out of it. 😁
Did I miss the part of how much this should cost. Everything included should cost how much ?
Does it take something all that beefy? All's I have is a laptop and I haven't gotten into anything yet, but I didn't have knowledge of needing higher tech gear.
I'd go with AMD! Ryzen 1700X for the cpu though. Just sayin.
i have a bunch of questions. Why a quadro gpu? why not a faster nvme ssd of similar pricing? e.g samsung sm series or 961 pro. why not more cores for the same price or higher?
what is the brand of that multi-arm stand for your monitors behind you?
I love building pc's! Went with a Quadro? That's an interesting choice lol if you don't mind me asking why not an nvidia 1080gtx? Or a gtx of any kind really?
A younger Clay, before realized gym gains
dont buy windows on disk, buy it on USB. windows sells it that way. much easier for installs, and dont need a cd drive anymore
What about using a MacBook for what u do??
im buying a 2017 imac, would you say getting the more expensive I7 core version is worth it or I5 would work good??
nate is so cute 😘😘
One huge tip for any computer build. Do your "board build"! Install CPU (with fan and heat sink), RAM, video on motherboard and connect the power to the motherboard from the power supply. Connect the monitor to the video card. User a screwdriver to short the pins for the power button…or connect the power button, but that might not reach. Shorting the pins by touching the screwdriver tip to the pins (locate the pins using the motherboard manual diagram, you have the manual…right?? lol) is just like hitting the power button. If you get video to the monitor (POST screen only as hard drive is not yet connected with operating system) and the CPU fan spins, you're in business. If not, you just found out you have some troubleshooting to do. Better to realize this now than after you've gone to all the trouble of getting everything mounted in the case, and then realize there's a problem.Defective motherboards are common. This is a good way to make sure yours is good before mounting it in the case. Same with video card, but those are less likely to be defective. CPU and RAM even less so as they are generally more solid.Once you complete the board build, disconnect the monitor, remove the video card, unhook all power, and install the motherboard with CPU and RAM in place into the case. I'm not seeing any specific videos on this. But this is how I learned back in the day as a PC tech working in tech shops. We'd normally have a separate workbench for board builds with a dedicated monitor, etc.
Don't forget to take off any plastic covers on any of the components. Especially on the cpu heat-sink!!! @8:20 you can see the cover is still on the bottom of the heat-sink. Clay if you see this, check up on the computer!
can you provide the link to the CPU heatsink ?
Also $AMD new Ryzen chips are out more powerful and cheaper than i7, don't waste your money on Intel, you will overpay for less performance
Great stuff ClayT…thank you.
If I have an old desktop computer, can I just use that case and make the necessary upgrades.
The "backplate" you installed is actually an IO-Shield. A backplate the on the back of the motherboard on some bigger cpu coolers.
What was the total price for the build?
I'll put my MAC up against anything these Dorks who waste their time and Money building! I spend less money at end of the day..and buy the Most expensive top MAC every couple of years. I spend my free time chasing Tail. Have fun running Windows and spending time with software debugging and viruses. Most people will never learn their conditioned to think this Paperweight is a Ferrari. I just buy the Ferrari save myself from being a Dork!
I just bought on ALIENWARE- Aurora (high performance gaming computer) from www.dell.ca, changed from one video card to Dual AMD Radeon RX580 video cards (+$150) and upgrade from 16 GB ram to 32GB (+$250), can run 6 monitors at once. Very good deal for the new year. (Intel® Core™ i7 8700K (6-Core/12-Thread, 12MB Cache, up to 4.7GHz w/ Intel® Turbo Boost Technology)
As I mentioned somewhere earlier,I was intimidated with all the computer screens behind u in ur videos. …so ,do we need 2-4 computers to trade?….omg….not sure if I will ever get into this trading…
Hey Clay will you do a video on installing the software after you put the computer together.?
That's overkill i3 8100 should be enough
What was that…. It was like building any other pc… A trading pc???? Wtf
No Wifi adapter?
Is there any lag with that video card? Would you use that card today or go with something else??
you did not remove the plastic on the fan
WTF you dont need a fuckin i7+Quadro+16gb ram for trading, a i3+1050ti+8gb ram will be more than enough. But maybe if you want more screens go with a different GPU, but for 2-3 screens the 1050ti is more than capable
what is the recommended Internet speed for this setup??
How much did it cost to build?
Newly bought motherboards have 5% DOA/RMA rate as a norm for the industry. Might be better to spend $2k on a new 27" iMac with applecare. Pugetsystems.com have expensive but very reliable computers and many articles on parts reliability.
that definitely is a overkill for a trading computer hahaha
great video clay…
Curious question. If you are trading from a physical PC, you run the risk of internet or power cutting out. You can use a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) to deal with the power going out, but the internet, maybe if you have an alternative, one would cut out and the other would have to connect. So, isn't it better to use a virtual PC that is hosted, rather than a physical one? Also, if you could host closer to the exchange, I think the BUY/SELL messages will be executed quicker. Am I wrong here? Cos I was thinking what PC to buy, and wondered if my wizz bang PC would just be an interface to connect to a more reliable faster virtual PC hosted close to the exchange, and hence, anything more than basic would be a waste of money. Thoughts?
why would you need a quadro? its a trading setup.. my pc has not even a gpu attached
Hi Clay, Happy Thanksgiving. Big Thanks for the sharing, I learn a lot. This video was done a year ago. If you have to do it again with the latest Gadgets /Parts available at this time, what would you change in the part list or a new recommended part list ?
At least be delicate with the parts
@claytrader what about the led lights that were supposed to be set in places?
I am physicist also and trader.After reading about radiation and its biology i hate cpus and pcs .I now only trade from my ipad.I hate computers.Well i am trading from ipad always.Ans it was remotely can go here and there.I have desktop 10years old 😂 , dell vostro but it was first model of celeron duo at that time.Costed me 230$s at that time.
is there any problem if i use vga/hdmi splitter for multiple monitor coz i use gtx 1060
Complete building noob holy shit know ur parts before doing a build guide man what tha fuck ur no different from a derp
so….how does this relate to trading?
I wanna learn trading but now i work at a place fixing computers and you made this build look so easy– you rock
oh and thanks for doing this vid
piss of shit
its not a m.2 hard drive or a m.2 card its a m.2 or m.2 ssdits a optical drive not a cd drive the reason you dont touch the bottom of the cpu is because you could easily bend the pinsuse a pea size dot on the center of the cputhe placement is not different on every motherboard its a io shield not a back plate
Very informative…You did not "lie" about the board ready to go in 9:52 …you were simply mistaken.
