A pc with quad core CPU has got to be better...it should be able to process faster and better than a duel

Consider:
1. Type of trading you wish to do
2. Budget
3. Buy accordingly.

For most trading basics, any PC will do. As your requirements become more sophisticated so will your hardware and budget!

If you're unsure and don't have unlimited money, just use the cheapest PC you already have, note any shortcomings and upgrade accordingly. Your biggest speed bottleneck is likely to be your internet connection - and your processor won't cure that.

If you buy new and want Intel, the best value bang for buck seems to be the Sandybridge processors - excellent "sweetspot" Core i5 / i3 - will do most things very nicely. However, even an old Celeron for scrapyard prices will do you for trading most stuff.

A dual CPU machine. Typically the motherboards in them are gonna be server mobo's. Trader-spec boxes, at my place at least (a large well-known investment bank), are dual CPU with each CPU having 6 cores.

Christiaan started this thread i don't think they are available in south-africa.We are always a couple of years behind in tecnology.I will get my new pc in three weeks and then i will scalp the 1m frame.Now i know that trading the 1m frame is suppose to be impossible but this system get's awesome reviews on forex peace army.I've seen it work on the 15m frame and according to some of the users it works pretty well on the 1m frame.

Plus i can't wait to have access to some new games once i've added a gforce ofcourse.:
