General Computing Requirements/Thoughts?

Hello Everyone-

This is my first time posting, I know little about computers, I'm new at day trading, and I'm hoping for some insight.

I use NT + Jigsaw, Pivt Pro indicator, tick indicator, and vol indicator. I have a new HP, Amd Processor sic core fx-8200, 10 G, and radeon 7570 graphics card. I only use 2 monitors. I do not trade a lot of volume. Futures only

CPU% sits at 5-8% when market is slow, 35%-40% when fast. When the market goes fast, it sounds like my computer is going to take off like a 747 jet. The fans run super hard

Do I need a better processor or do I need to install some type of cooler for the processor? Is running at 40% considered intensive? Is my computer capable? I would hate to buy another one after I just spent $700 on this one.

Any and all thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!

If your indicators are not sluggish, then everything is fine - except for what is most likely an OEM/stock CPU fan, which belongs in the garbage. Ask a computer friend to buy you a good new HSF and replace it, after which it will be virtually silent. Keep in mind some replacements will require a backplate, which means you'll have to remove your motherboard to install it.

You can decide whether or not this is worth it based on confirming if you have a OEM stock fan, and then asking yourself whether or not the noise really bothers you.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
