Building a 6-monitor trading PC, is this a good motherboard choice?

Here is what my build looks like...I don't really know what to look for in a motherboard, but this one is inexpensive and has good reviews.

So far I'm leaning toward the MSI Z870G43.

Also I think my power supply is probably overkill, but a 600w is not much more money than a 500w so why not.

well the mobo does not matter to much since all 6 monitors will have to be ran off of your gpu, but msi makes good boards

The processor you have on the parts list is a locked processor, but the z87 boards are for overclocking. If you want to save some money you can go with http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-h87g43

same board just cheaper. That mobo is fine for what you need.

What do you mean by a trading PC? Is 2Gb enough for 6 monitors?

The card is an eyefinity 6 which is built to display to 6 monitors, so I would assume so. By trading, I mean day trading, watching price charts.

Hi, How is that video card working out?
