Memory / RAM

The minimum amount of memory you should get with a new trading computer is 8GB. I would recommend 16GB of memory if you can find it in your budget due to future advances in trading software that can happen within the lifetime of the computer.

Memory that is a little faster is unlikely to produce any noticeable benefit to your trading computer. Faster memory is usually selected using a quick test of the memory that comes off the production line. This test is often too quick for a thorough examination of the memory, such that you may find it causes your trading computer to crash when running it at its full advertised speed. I would recommend getting the most reliable memory rather than the fastest memory. I have found that memory sticks made with Hynix SDRAM chips are both fast and extremely reliable.
