    Hey

    Last occasion to grind out a shitty computer. Damn crisis blocks everything in corporations.
    This is what I can choose from :

    Dell Optiplex GX 780 DT; Intel Celeron Dual Core E3300 (2.5GHz); RAM 2048MB (1x2048MB); HDD 160GB; Napęd DVD+/-RW; Mysz Optyczna USB; Klawiatura USB; wraz z usługą dostawy i instalacji.

    Dell Optiplex 740MLK DT; Athlon X2 5000B (2.6 GHz); RAM 2GB; HDD 250GB; Napęd DVD+/-RW; Głośniki; Mysz Optyczna USB; Klawiatura USB;


    Seems that AMD looks better in benchmarks but I have these good memories from s775 intel stuff. What would you suggest? I generally run SQL clients and general office stuff.

    There pretty much the same, but id go with the second one as it has more HDD space?

    The E3300 is a marginally faster CPU and the AMD rig has a bigger HDD.


    Take your pick really.... you wont notice much difference.



    Personally, I'd chose the Intel rig.

    That also takes all (afaik) 775 CPU's, so if you stumble upon a cheap quad you can put that there. :)

    AMD is never been good at excel, not that it matters realy, if it takes 0.345 seconds longer to do it then intel its nothing to write home about.

    I dont even know how they benchmark excel? its just numbers :S

    Okay, so it is basically newer Celeron (LGA775) versus an older (939?) Athlon X2? That explains a lot. I misread the OP a bit and thought about the AM2 Athlons (gen II).

    What I have seen with my company, they offer either a slow laptop or slow desktop BUT I was allowed to order a SSD under my department and they imaged the machine when it arrived. Much more speed now doing documents and such.
