    Am wondering what is best for NinjaTrader, as I am going to be buying a new computer soon.

    defintely buy a strong quad core, take care you choose plenty of quick ram and also keep an eye on noise level and heating. i am very happy with my quad for trading, a powerhouse you cant hear. i suppose many more programs will efficiently support multicore architectures in 2009 so this should be a clear choice. good trades, cosmic

    I don't understand why everyone thinks they need a super-computer for NinjaTrader? Runs fine on my E6700 and would run fine on a 5 year old P4 as well, assuming at least 1 GB memory.
