In overview I have recently come into possession of an AMD Phenom X4 Quad Core Processor 9650, 2.3 GHz, 3600 MHz, L2 cache: 4x 512KB, L3 cache: 2 MB, process: 65nm SOI, Socket: AM2+, consumption: 95 W, HD9650WCGHBOX.
I want to build a computer to watch up too 12 streaming video windows simultaneously while conducting a number of other peripheral task.I have an large or mid “ATX form” case in mind and I'm thinking 8gbs DDR2 with dual channel ops, a single video card (not embedded), with at least four to six SATA connectors, and support for 3Gbpsto operation, integrated USB, sound, LAN , and gigabyte Ethernet. I am sure that bios and chip sets are crucial aspects of the device, but don't know how to interpret the technical jargon in the ads and articles I've read.
Documentation should include information on jumpers and switches found on the board, connector pin-outs for connectors, specs for plug-in components, and access to down-loadable driver and BIOS updates, FAQs, updated tables of processor and memory compatibility, and utility programs from the vendor.
I want to build a “gaming rig” dedicated to day-trading to see if I can gain some kind of edge. So many of the needs are the same but not necessarily. I am a novice of this realm and if any of this proposition doesn't jive I would appreciate insight and direction in general- and about the mobo and the vid-card in particular.
No I don't like to gamble but lately I've had a lot of time on my hands with few prospects to my advantage.
