Innovation is the edge.

The BaconTrading Machine

An overpowered rig that tackle everything and never breaks a sweat! With a liquid cooled 18 core i9 processor, dual GTX 1080 graphics cards, 64 Gigs of RAM … and so much more, this machine easily captures video, edits video, runs charts, plays games, streams content and crunches numbers – all at the same time! And then it goes the extra mile and justifies the title of ‘overpowered’ by getting it all done under the cool glow of RGB lighting.

I get a lot of questions about what computer parts that I use for work. So, here are the major components in my rig as a static reference guide.

Yes, it’s a lot of fun. But it also reliably does everything I need.

I researched what I wanted a computer to do, then found the required components on line, and then found a company to build and test the machine. Before really shopping I created a spreadsheet to build expectations for costs so I would know what would be a fair price. This rig set me back ( year 2018 ) a little over $7,535.00. I have be genuinely pleased with its performance and have never for a moment felt buyers remorse.
