You may need to look at some boutique builders like Maingear who uses quality parts which probably has a higher chance of lasting that long.

That's only 83.3 days.

 

Will this computer be used online during this test?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Yes. The computer must online during testing time. Have you any idea about this computer?

 

Thanks

Most any off the shelf computer should be able to do this once you have all of the updates.  I would suggest Windows 7 with service pack one.

 

If you are going to be crunching large number I would suggest Window 7 64-bit and add as much RAM as you can afford.  There is a limit with the amount the motherboard will support.

Agreed, but, just for the sake of doing so, it may be wise to add some extra cooling or ventilation, just to make sure no overheating occurs.
