  • Spec me a new [office] build...

    A more serious question now...

    Can someone spec up a lightweight office desktop build please, with an SSD?
    Windows 10 licence is also a must.

    Used for light office work, spreadsheets, word documents, occasional PDF / image editing.
    As a benchmark, I currently use an i7-6500U laptop and it's plenty fast enough.

    Doesn't need masses of storage, but needs to run everything off one small (250Gb) SSD.

    Needs M&K, case, cables, RAM, CPU, mobo, PSU, SSD. Already have monitors.

    Very preliminary, but we might be looking at buying x10 new machines for the office, and I'm weighing up options.

    No budget as of yet, bu I'm curious to see what can be done for as little as possible per rig.

    Cheers in advance

    I've built something simliar to this a few times.. works perfectly well for office tasks. Could even chop the case and PSU for a generical with PSU included.?!?

    Win 10 Pro licences are about a tenner, but not from here!

      We use a very similar spec to that across the majority of the admin dept at work. Works absolutely fine for the needs of office work.

        i would look at going am4 tbh, swap that mobo and cpu out for these and then you have a cheap upgrade path later if needed.

        gets you twice as many threads so the systems will multi task better then if you need more power later amd will have shiny new cpu coming out for it for another 2 years at least while intel has already killed off that version of that socket

          for 10 office machines, I wouldn't be building them new - refurbs for sure and just do the Samsung EVO SSD which comes with decent clone software

            Might be pushing it. Not much headroom. I do a bit, but not much, more than straightforward office and even with all the data on a second drive it fills up.

            Is it needs or must?

            Win 10 Pro 64-bit + Asus Z-170-K + Intel i5-6500 + 512GB Samsung M.2 PCI-e SSD + 16GB DDR4 2400MHz Memory
            Win 10 Pro 64-bit + Asus M5A88-M EVO + AMD Phenom II X6 + 8GB Corsair XMS3 1600 + Radeon HD 6450
            Win 10 Home 32-bit + Asus M2N-SLI DeLuxe + AMD Athlon 64 X2, Dual Core 5400 + 4.0 GB Memory + NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT

              Working files are never more than a few hundred megabytes at a time, and work data is stored and accessed from a server.

              Doesn't need much room on the pc itself at all. I've been working with 256gb for a while and the drive is usually less than half full.

                Yeah almost everything at our place runs 120gb ssds and we have enough space. As long as you're not using it for file storage as well, 256 should be fine, imo.
