    I'm building a CNC router. The Mach 3 software I will be using likes Windows XP the best. I'm going to build up a XP box that will be dedicated for running the router and need a good, solid machine. What is the fastest/most processor that XP can utilize?

    4gb ram is max, correct?

    I welcome any suggestions for a stable, reliable motherboard/processor combination.

    Thanks C

    The requires are extremely low. I would say just buy the cheapest computer you can get and it will still be overkill for what Mach 3 needs. 2GB of ram and a dual core CPU should be plenty.
