CPU doesn't matter as much as the GPU.

What resolution monitors?

Get nivdia quadro p620 2GB ? dual GPU

An X570 Tomahawk or a Taichi or an Asusu X570-E or a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master - all would be good motherboards.
brother ; GPU ; nvidia quadro p620 2GB ; PCI e 3.0 ; but mother boad gigabyte and asus showing PCI e 4.0 ... is it fine or any problem occurs?

Should be fine, but why buy two pricey Quadro cards if you're just using the system for stock trading? Get two GT 710s instead. The only reason you'd want or need a more expensive card is if you had something that required better 3D acceleration. The 2D / web browsing performance is going to be essentially equal no matter how much (or little) you spend.

Have you looked into Maltrox's range of GPUs? As far as I'm aware those support the most dedicated outputs.

I actually asked this question on Reddit recently as I'm looking to upgrade to a six monitor array myself.

What I was told (paraphrasing) is that the type of arrays you're looking to build used in financial trading etc typically just use a bunch of DP MST adapters daisy-chained.

Ie neither multiple GPUs nor GPUs like Maltrox are that commonly used. More commonly, it's just a good GPU with a very generous max resolution and a bunch of daisy-chained outputs.

I'm still looking at specc-ing out my six array build (although based on Linux, so I worry that daisy-chaining MSTs will cause OS compatibility issues). So let me know what you end up with!

No problem - pcie3.0 graphics cards will run on pcie4.0 slots. I have a pcie3.0 graphics card running in my X570 PC.

ASUS ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Formula ATX Motherboard vs
ASRock X570 AQUA EATX AM4 Motherboard

The Aqua is bigger and configured for water cooling.

If you want the cheapest then buy the cheapest. They would be both fine.
ok bro ; i want Ram slots : 4 ; and SSD NVMe M.2 slots :2 ; HDD slots : 3 ; USD 3.0 ports : 4 ; PCIe 3.0 slots : 3 ; is this above motherboards comparable? or please suggest me better motherboard for AM4 support !

I still have no idea why, if you're looking for something 'economical' as you say, that you're buying Quadro cards. As for how much RAM you need, who can say without knowing what software you intend to run, and how many instances? Some traders just pop up a ton of browser windows, others run some very intensive data-analysis tools. If the former, you need much less ram, and that 3900x is quite overpowered as well. If the latter, you might need 32gb or even more, depending.

With that many tabs open, I would probably suggest 32gb. If money is tight, you could try a single stick of 16gb, and add a second if the system is sluggish. OTOH, you don't need pricey high-speed RAM for web browsing: you can get basic 3200mhz sticks.
