This is my first computer build. I've always enjoyed working with electronics and was in the market for a new PC. I have been day trading for the last year and my Gateway GT5040 wasn't quite cutting it anymore. I've been using that with 2 monitors alongside my laptop for trading. I had a few friends help me with the build, and I think it should suffice for the time being. I've also recently gotten into streaming my media from my PC, so I will be running Plex on this computer most of the time. I know not everything is top-of-the line, but I tried to stick to a budget and will upgrade as the budget allows. My first step is a CPU cooler, dvd drive, and media card reader. After that a second 2TB drive to mirror the other TB drive, and eventually 1-2 21"-24" monitors. I pulled the 250gb HDD from the gateway out and am using that as well in this machine for extra storage. I re-used my Gateway and Hanns G monitors(got them free along with the computer from my parents years ago) as well as keyboard, speakers, and wireless USB mouse. So other than day trading, streaming media, and occasional internet browsing by my wife, that's all this computer will be used for. I am not a big PC gamer anymore, but eventually may add a graphics card to incorporate more monitors/take some load off of the CPU. Anyways, enjoy, and ignore the scissors in the pictures, obviously they were my wife's idea. **Edited 1/30/14 - Added Coolermaster N520 CPU fan, 2 pictures of that and then a picture before and after with the fan temps. This fan is 3 pin and runs at 1800 rpm constantly. I have had all my trading stuff running plus streaming plex on the computer and my ipad and the temps stayed under 100 even with the CPU occasionally hitting 100% usage.
