System Requirements

Powergold Operating System

Microsoft Windows 7 or higher is supported, but for the best experience Windows 10 or 11 is recommended.  Windows Server 2012 R2+ is also supported (Windows Server 2016 or higher recommended).  Powergold fully supports virtualization.

Powergold NXT requires Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or higher (SQL Server 2017 or higher recommended).  All SQL Server editions, including the free Express edition, are fully supported and are performant.


  •  Processor:  Any modern computer capable of running Microsoft Windows with good performance will work great with Powergold.  An Intel i5 or higher CPU is recommended.
  •  RAM:  Powergold runs great on the minimum RAM required by the hosting Microsoft Windows version.  But in general, 4 GB or higher is recommended for best performance.  8 GB+ is ideal.
  •  Disk space:  Powergold requires less than 500 MB for install.  Microsoft SQL Server requires anywhere from 1 GB to 6 GB, depending on which components are chosen during install.  An SSD drive is recommended as it provides exceptional performance on the computer hosting the database.
  •  Powergold requires a minimum 1024×768 display resolution.  A higher display resolution is highly recommended for optimum experience.


When Powergold is used in a LAN networking environment a minimum of 100 Mbps speed is recommended, 1000 Mbps (gigabit) offers best performance.  Powergold is also capable of performing well even over wireless and VPN/WAN connections.
