Hi everybody. This is Eddie Z from EZ Trading Computers, and you are watching my educational video series on how to buy a trading computer.

Now let’s talk about the motherboard. Reliability and quality are everything in a good trading computer, and that starts at the motherboard. This means getting the absolute best brand names, which are ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte.

My favorite motherboard for trading computers is the ASUS TUF Series of boards. The TUF Series uses heavy-duty materials and has met independent certification as military grade. This means it’s been tested under extreme conditions, such as heat and vibration. And it’s heat that absolutely destroys electronics over time.

It’s unmatched in reliability, and it even comes with a five-year warranty. The latest version of this motherboard comes with extra-large heat sinks and a dedicated chipset fan to provide optimal cooling.

A word of warning here, many trading computer builders and even most manufacturers like Dell and HP won’t tell you what brand of motherboard they’re putting in their systems. Why? Because they don’t want you to know that they’re using no-name, lower-quality boards that they can buy in bulk to save money.

When it comes to RAM, you’ve got to think of RAM like a light bulb. It either works or it burns out. And in that case, you want to go with a quality name brand. The best names in RAM are G.SKILL, Mushkin, Crucial, OCZ, and AMPX.

Let’s talk about storage devices, also known as hard drives. And to get right to the point, the fastest hard drives are something called solid-state hard drives, or SSDs.

An SSD is anywhere from five times to 30 times faster than the old school spinning hard drives of yesteryear. And because it has no moving parts like the old hard drives, it’s way more reliable.

Without getting super technical, it’s important to know that currently the very fastest and most economical hard drives are known as the NVME M.2 solid-state hard drives. So make sure your new trading computer has one.

I would also recommend that you go with a minimum SSD size of 250 GB. And the very best brands to consider are Samsung, HP, and Crucial. Of course, you want to stay away from no-name brands.
