A Calculator is a bussiness/finance analysts bread and butter tool(device) also best friend.

September 27, 2010 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CAJ , HPQ , TXN

Looking back during my school years in mathematics classes(North America) I studied arithmatics, algebra, calculus,etc. and stopped at advanced calculus. The methods of solving equations and finding solutions has not changed from Al-Khwarizmi/Diophantus of Alexandria both credited for founding algebra to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz/Sir Isaac Newton both credited for founding calculus. Looking back all I did was take notes, analyze, memorize formulas, techniques, understand the procedures in solving equations and finding solutions. To this day the methods taught in class in solving equations and finding solutions hasn't changed since being discovered.  [more]

HELP!!! I'm thinking of purchasing a CUSTOM PC TOWER and need MOTLEY FOOLS COMMUNITY input.

September 13, 2010 – Comments (10) | RELATED TICKERS: AMD , INTC , NVDA

I need motley fool community's opinions and personal experiences about CUSTOM PC TOWERs.

I went to a independant computer specialty shop to research about custom over mass produced PCs and they asked me what is the PC main purpose used for? I said what? they said is it for basic or gaming? I said for surfing and tracking stocks. They recommended me mid-range hardware components, above range networking hardware, multi-monitors and etc. They also gave a list of important computer hardwares needed to build a CUSTOM PC TOWER and with it a list of manufacture brands and etc. Assembly,burn in, and testing will cost extra.

Which case, powersupply,motherboard,processor(CPU),cooling hardware, memory(RAM),graphics cards(GPU),soundcard,modems internet routers,hard drive, opitical drives,PC speakers,monitors,software and etc. should I purchase?

Is there anything not listed that should be recommended? (the operating system will be from Microsoft)

Which brands is recommended?


Below is a rough list of hardware and some peripherals needed to build a stock tracker and hopefully become a day trader computer. If your PC is customized please write your PC specs.


Any suggestions and recommendations greatly appreciated!!!
