Sounds like you need speed throughout. So I would suggest C, C+, C++, and also would suggest anything that uses a lot of overhead in the way of libraries you should stay away from and this means .NET. You can however have all your inportant code that needs the speed in a C/C+/C++ exe/dll and use another language like VB or .NET as the user interface (i.e. start/stop button) but if you are going to put so much into a C language then you might want to continue to use a C language like VC++.

Good Luck
