Office pc

salah2000

Im putting together a pc for office use. Im conflicted on what cpu and other pargs i should use.

The 6400 is $269 and the 6600 is $324. Is it worth that extra premium. My main concerns are that i want this pc to last a LONG time and not be sluggish in a year or two. Sooo any suggestions.

I live in AU and i value performance and aesthetics over everything.

If you don't want your PC to get sluggish then i suggest you get an SSD . Most office tasks don't require a fancy CPU so even an i3 would serve you well ( i have been using an i3 PC for work for a few years now and haven't encountered any slowdowns with word processing and email)

So a 6400 will serve me well. Do you know any CHEAP skylake mini itx boards

i3 is a great "future proof" cpu for office systems. Just make sure every other component is reliable and like @sunil6512 said getting an SSD will help in the long run, reliable power supply, nice case (case will play a big roll depending on the environment, ext.

This looks like a nice board and the Dual NICs are nice especially if the system will be connected to a work network or even booting off it. http://www.amazon.com/ASRock-Motherboard-Mini-H170M-ITX-DL/dp/B0151PLSCC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1451466320&sr=8-3&keywords=itx+1151

 

EDIT: Not AU but see if you can find the same board on MSY possibly.

Mini ITX is not worth it unless you have space concerns , ATX boards have more possibility for expansion and tend to cost less

I have heard that cheap SSDs tend to slow down , try getting a 840 EVO SSD - they are cheap and last a long time without slowing down , also corsair ssds are quite good
