When considering a trading computer setup for any type of trading, it’s important to know what specifications (specs) to focus on. Some of the most important specs of high-end trading computers include:
- Processor (CPU) Power and Speed
- Cooling System
- Random Access Memory (RAM)
- Multi-Monitor Support
- Video Card(s)
Processor Core and Speed
Get a Multi-core CPU
Get a Fast CPU
As mentioned previously, having the right processor is more than just the number of cores. You need to also keep in mind the processor speed offered. An average, run-of-the-mill computer has a multi-core processor, yes, but with speeds ranging from 2.0 GHz to 4.0 GHz. That is simply not fast enough when your livelihood depends on the performance of your computer. The best trading computers offer Intel Core i-series processors with a max-boost speed (the fastest the processor can run), of 4.5 GHz to 5.8 GHz on all cores.
It’s important to keep in mind that the processors we’re talking about here aren’t something you can get in a standard off-the-shelf machine. These specs require a custom-built machine put together with your specific needs in mind.
A trading computer’s CPU works hard, putting out a lot of heat, so you need to make sure that you’re providing enough cooling to keep it going. Traders who don’t prioritize a high-quality CPU cooler soon discover why it is important. You don’t want your computer overheating and shutting down right in the middle of the trading day! Even beyond the concern of the processor overheating, if you regularly run hot, you run the risk of wearing down the processor faster than expected. That ends up costing you thousands of dollars in the long run – money you can save simply by investing in a proper cooling system.

Another important aspect you should consider when choosing someone to build your machine is how receptive to contact they are. If there is no response to emails after several days, or you can’t ever reach them by phone, they aren’t worth your time and definitely not worth the money. You need to be sure they’ll support the computer for at least the warranty period after you make a purchase, so they need to be reachable.
