Hi I need to buy a new computer.
I have a spreadsheet getting live updates via DDE for 50 stocks. the spreadsheet contains over a million formulas and interacts with an acess db in real time. It has 50 pages and about 40,000 rows per page.
What is the cheapest desktop I can buy that can run this spreadsheet in real time if it is the spreadsheet and the trading application which provides the feed are the only applications that will ever run on this machine?
I need a fast processor, and DDR memory. everything else i dont really care about.
