Dell Optiplex 3010 SFF

Everything should be fine. Toss an SSD inside to improve system responsiveness, can't go wrong there.

Will Dell Optiplex 3010 SFF with i3-2gen and 4 gb of ram handle those things?

-Web browsing

-Office programs (Word, Excel, etc.)

-Video playback

Assuming it has a spinning rust hard drive it may be slow on Windows 10. Windows 10 really hates hard drives. On Linux, however, no problem at all.

He said 2nd gen so I'm assuming a i3 21XX. That means dual core 3.1-3.4 ghz.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

dont spend the money on the SSD if its a Sata 2 port (i have seen a few Optiplex with sata 2)

There's still an enormous performance uplift. There may be half the bandwidth but the latency and caching is still vastly improved.

What about 3rd gen i3, will there be any difference?

Depends on which one, but I doubt you'd notice.
