It's been long time since I thought about chess. :)
Wow!!! How do you manage to do both Stock trading and playing Chess? Both demands lot of brain work and handling two things is one helluva thing.:thumbs:

Going by this post you can either pick up i5 6600 or the suggested FX8350.
What's a Good CPU for Chess Engine Game Analysis? - CPUs, Motherboards, and Memory - Linus Tech Tip

Thanks.Yup both are lot of brain work.:)

What do you think would be a good Motherboard with 7-8 USB ports to use from the cabinet?

@ above query on mobo,I mean with i5 skylake.

stock trading most of all needs at least, like at least bare minimum Dual Monitor setup.
Bigger the screens, the better.Go with dual LG 23inch monitors.
also need that ssd for fast file opens.

Thanks. How do you think I may reduce the rays from the monitor as I have to stare at the screen for 12 to 15 hours,may be.For my current CRT,I used a screen guard which helped to ease the eye strain.

I think all the motherboard has more than 8 usb ports. But readily available will be different from model to model. Mostly you will get at least 6 in back and 2 in the front, and the rest you can access from the mid board using some kinda cable.
i5 6600 costs about 17200/-
