Nice one

Thanks everyone for your responses. I have owned macs now for 13 years. However I still use PC's everyday at work along with Macs too. To get something new for home a PC desktop looks like the way to go. Especially for price and getting more for your money. I could always use my 27 inch iMac as a second monitor as well. Haven't looked to price out PC's for a long time. Buying Macs, its built already and dont have to worry about components. However this a disadvantage as well.

As for my trading. I don't have a ton of indicators either. I just want a powerful PC that I can use for long time and not have to spend a crazy amount of money. Plus I look forward to becoming a millionaire.
