Office PCs just don't need that much.
7/9/2012 7:54:32 PM
While office PCs don't need that much, it may vary. I built an i5-3570 system for an exec. Its a bit of over-kill, but its super fast and it should last him a good 5 years. Besides, its only $75 more than if I went with an i3-CPU.
I just re-imaged an old AMD-64 computer (3500/ 2.2Ghz) with 2GB DDR1 RAM. Sure its XP SP2. After I updated a few programs (firewall/ AV / etc) - the PC is a fine office machine. Boot up time is about 63 seconds after POST with its SLOW 250GB PATA drive. About the same as my intel Quad core with Windows7 before I installed an SSD.
MS-Word 2003 opens in about 2-3 seconds.. like everything else.
