Ultimate Stand-Alone PC for Frontend Only

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by profutrader, Dec 31, 2007.

  1. SoonI will be getting a few computers for trading in an arcade environment.

    The PC will only have the OS plus the frontend Connection is leaseline to the frontend provider's network.

    Here are the questions :

    1. Do I buy the BEST hardware at this present moment? Or is it an overkill for a PC for just the frontend?

    2. If not, what is the BEST solution for this situation?

    3. Any other unorthodox/orthodox way of enhancing the speed at which the order gets sent at the PC level? Does it make a difference? How about the bandwidth of the leaseline? Split seconds are important us because we are scalpers.

    Any inputs will be greatly appreciated.
