I'm currently using Eclipse to run some java code I've written for crunching a lot of numbers, but I am finding that my applications can take 2-2.5 days sometimes to finish and I'm thinking that means I should upgrade to a better computer and wondering what's the best bare bone parts to get without paying an arm and a leg if I can avoid it.
Currently I am using a 64 bit linux OS with a Phenom II six core CPU, 4 gigs of corsair dominator and 8 gigs of corsair vengeance.
when I run 6 apps at once I see all six cores maxed out for about two days and now I'm starting to need to have 8+ of these running at the same time and thinking I need an 8 core or maybe even a 16 core CPU?
Any and all advice about what hardware I should get would be greatly appreciated!
