    I just purchased a computer online and wondering if i made the right decision or should i be using a vps?
    The computer will be left on all day to run several scripts.
    I bought it refurbished for $200, i seen similar specs on vps for around $40 a month.
    computer specs:
    4gb ram (extendable to 16gb)
    750gb hard drive
    Intel core 2 duo processor
    windows 7

    I think computer will be good. You have some good specs and after a few months you already payed the vps more than just your computer. The only bad thing is: You have to pay more for electricity bills I think. The only bad thing I have experienced with VPS is that the pc somtimes restarts :( so good choice

    thats pretty $hit PC to be honest, Actually you overpaid a bit for it...
    and btw you can get such VPS for less than $10/month, so I wouldnt even waste electricity to run that computer.

    Your processor is old. You could have done that on a VPS with unlimited bandwidth. Try CheapWindowsVPS.com

    You should see my spare computer im running now, its a windows xp with a pentium 4 processor from what i can tell the intel core 2 duo is much better so im thinking it will be a big improvement.
    That site sells the vps for $40 for the same specs so my computer will be paid off in 5 months, and after the 5 months i still have a computer which i can resell if i ever need to.

    My point was you paid $200 for something that is barely worth $100 in todays market. I was just linking you to a VPS company.

    The computer is only part of the equation (core 2 duo will not give you much snap though). Most of the time it's the internet line that sucks. If your provider only allows you a few connections, you got the computer for nothing. These SEO tools are pretty demanding.

    You should have asked the question before taking action.

    I see a lot of people say VPS would have been a better solution. Then again, using a dedicated machine is better than virtual shared resources. Even if the physical machine is weaker in specs.

    I Think computer is the best choice.The computer can be easily controlled compared to vps.It has limited resources.
    The computer accepts the digital information.

    If you just leave your computer on all day every day 24/7, wouldn't this consume a shit ton of electricity as well?

    Did you factor that into your costs?

    VPS = More powerful but costly
    PC = less powerful costs nothing.

    Go for the pc.
