The Re-Designed Emporos - updated May 2022
The Emporos is Alexander PCs stock trading build. We designed this model specifically for maximum performance doing the things that are most important to traders. So you won't find lots of RGB lights like in our gaming systems - just the things you need. That means lots of CPU cores/threads, lots of available memory for charting, the ability to run 4 screens at once with no lag, and the fastest data transfer possible both in terms of internet speeds and drive speeds.
This system is driven by the Intel Core i9-12900K - this CPU is a 16-core beast that offers the right combination of performance and efficiency cores to handle all your taskings. We keep it cool with a super quiet Corsair iCUE H100i RGB Pro XT all-in-one liquid CPU cooler.
We pair the multi-core beast CPU with a serving of DDR5 memory at 4800 MHz speeds. Your choice of 32GB or 64GB. Go ahead, open as many windows as you want!
Adding DDR5 memory means we need to platform on a mainboard that can support it, so we've opted for the ASUS PRIME Z690-A. This one gives you the durability and quality to work it hard every day with 16+1 DrMOS power, high quality capacitors and chokes, and a top tier VRM. It also carries all the connectivity you need with PCIe Gen 5 compatibility, Thunderbolt 4 support, and 2.5Gb ethernet provide the super fast speeds traders want. (There is no onboard WiFi with this board, but you're not trading on WiFi anyways... are you? ARE YOU? No. We thought not.)
Everything about this build is designed to handle the constant huge streams of data hitting your system as you work 4 screens full of charts, graphs, and news feeds. You want 27 windows open at once? No sweat. You’ll actually see them all too, because we we chose a GeForce RTX 3050 for the graphics card in this one - it can support all 4 of your screens in ultra-high-resolution and handle all the pixels you can throw at it. This system is optimized for trading, but will do some serious 1080p gaming too - you know, if you need to take a little mental break from the charting.
If you'd like to up the ante on the gaming side a little more, you can opt for the GeForce RTX 3060 and provide a little more punch to the gaming graphics. Is it necessary? No. But hey, we love gaming. Sorry, not sorry :)
To ensure minimum load times and unbelievably quick read and write speeds, we've opted for a 1TB Western Digital SN850 Black M.2 NVMe SSD for the storage drive. With read/write speeds of up to 7000/5300 MB/s this is one of the fastest drives on earth and never disappoints. If you need a little extra room for that game library, you can opt for a 2TB serving size instead.
For a polished, upscale look and plenty of airflow we housed this one in a Corsair 4000D Airflow case and added 3 high airflow PWM case fans.
The Emporos comes with Windows 11 Professional installed and fully updated. We also install and update all necessary drivers prior to shipping your PC.
