Hello,
Which one would be better for a work/business computer, where I would install an accounting system?
AMD Phenom II x4 810 2.6 GHZ 6GB RAM 1TB $600
or
AMD Athlon II 630 Quad Core 2.8 GHZ 4GB RAM 750 GB $560
Thank you!

The extra $40 per computer gets you:
CPU - only slightly faster than athlon II quad core. They are basically the same thing except for on chip cache. Has an impact in games, less so for other tasks.
RAM - 2 gbs more. Current cost of 1 gig is around $20
HDD - difference of 250 gb, you likely wont fill half of either drive, so this category doesn't matter.

Either CPU will work fine, I can't say if there will be a strong impact of the cache on the phenom producing better performance because it really depends on the software. It would be at most 10% difference. At $40 difference, I would just get the phenom build, but if you are really tight on budget, skip the extra ram and HDD space and get the cheaper athlon build.

Congratulations on your choice. You'll especially not regret your purchase if you ever intend to game or use programs that are GPU accelerated.
