[Chimera-users] Computational power requirement

Dear staff,
we need some advice about the computational power required by the software
to perform several operations/processing with big volumes obtained by
cryoEM at high resolution. For example the fitting of several pdb crystal
structure (n=20-30) into a single volume at high resolution of a protein
complex (MW > 1.2 MDa).
What kind of graphics power do we'll need to run Chimera properly with this
kind of structures? and CPU/RAM performance?
If you have any suggestion.

Thanks in advance for your help,

all the best,
