Hello, does somebody know, what hardware is best for a huge mathematica calculation, that needs lots of memory? I think of minimum 8GB memory and the fastest possible processors (probably opterons???). However, it should be a personal computer. Is it better to run it under Linux or Windows? Thanks, Manuel Schmidt
