Possible? It's for, as you guessed, a workstation.
What does he want it for?
He trades stocks, and runs quite a few programs at the same time.
$6300 CDN or USD? You can buy a lot of computer for that money!
I was able to slap a system together for $4135 excluding tax:
- ASUS ROG Strix XG438Q 43" 3840 x 2160 4K
- ASUS AREZ Strix Radeon RX Vega 56
- Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 1TB m.2 NVMe SSD
- Asus TUF X299 MARK 2 motherboard
- Intel Xeon W-2133 / 3.6 GHz processor
What programs? What requirements they have?
You don't need to spend $6000 , or $4000. He might just need to spend between 1-2K for it.
Oh, he plays games as well, that's the reason for it's beefiness (and the reason he doesn't want to go Apple even if he's a big fan of Apple).
But he does play around with virtual machines. I'll ask him what trading programs he uses, but he's got like 7 screens with all sorts of graphs and crap.
