Hi all

I've got an older HP workstation that was used for CAD/Rendering. Specs below:
Dual Xeon E5-2680 (20M Cache,2.7GHz/3.5GHz Turbo) 16 core 32 thread?
96GB RAM
Quadro M2000 - (4 x display port)
SSD

I'm not overly tech savvy so before getting a replacement wondered if this would be suitable to run Tradestation on. I expect to have upto 8 range or volume based charts up simultaneusly, each with 2/3 standard indicators. No auto strategies.

Any obvious issues/bottlenecks?

Thanks for any advice.

Cheers

Not sure if you are trolling or not but those specs are server grade and it is more than enough in my opinion. You should be able to run it just fine on that thing.

Thanks for the reply
No trolling here , just a tech dinosaur :-)

The workstation hasn't been used as a trading computer, so wondered whether I'd be better of just selling it & buying a more suitably spec'd "trading machine". It will be a dedicated trading computer so dont need it to do much else other than run Tradestation. I'm not (currently) a coder so wont be creating my own strategies/indicators/backtesting just yet :-)

Cheers
