    I have a desktop that I need to upgrade and I have a friend that owns Win 7 Pro 64bit but we do not know if I will be able to run my SEO programs on this OS. I thought I would ask here to see what you guys use. I do not want to spend money on a VPN because I can rebuild my desktop for what I need it for.

    Programs
    • GSA Search Engine Ranker - Running 24/7
    • GSA Index - Running 24/7
    • Captcah Sniper X4 - Running 24/7
    • SB -When needed
    • All the Link-Asst. - when needed except Rank Tracker -Running
    • ChimpRewriter - When needed
    • TweetAdder4 -Running 24/7

    I did contact Edwinsoft and a few other compaines but waiting for email replies so why I wait I am asking here.

    What I plan to buy
    Motherboard - Unsure but server type
    OS - Windows 7 Pro - Hopping I can buy it off my friend then I can buy this very cheap.
    CPU - intel Xeon
    RAM - 16gigs to start

    I use win pro 64 bit and use GSA, scrapebox, captchasniper - don't use the others but can't see a problem. Never had any problems using any SEO software.

    I use Win 7 Ultimate-64 Bit and I never had running any SEO softwares up until now. You'll be able to run most (if not all) of the SEO softwares on it ;)

    No I did not look into to cost to buy that OS. I am hopping to buy the OS off my friend for $30-60 dollars as it is just collecting dust. That is why i am going with his OS now that I know I will be able to run my programs.

    Thanks everyone for giving input.

    Since you are planning on running a lot of programs I would recommend getting the PC you want and just running a VPS
    on it for your programs and tools.

    If you're only planning to run tools on it then I would recommend you to install Windows Server 2008/2012 because you will end up saving a lot of memory (RAM) because Windows 7 is a big time resource consumer.

    Further, all those programs mentioned in your post are compatible with Windows Server 2008/2012.

    If you want something to run on High speed Bandwidth with a lot of configuration for 24x7 then I would recommend you to get a VPS.

    I have used most of those on 64bit Win7 fine, however that work is all now done on a VPS.

    Definitely possible to run these software's on the computer. Alternatively, you could just spend a little more to get a VPS to run it 24/7 without the hassle of buying all the components and stuff like that.
