I have a budget of approximately $1500 and need to buy a dell PC. I know that I can get a better PC if I build it myself, but in this case, I have to buy a Dell PC since I am buying it for work. I dont expect to have graphics intensive work, but might require significant number crunching. So I was wondering if you had any suggestions on what Dell PC and what configuration should I buy.
After reading about the recent lapses in Dells quality I'd actually recommend an iBuypower or CyberpowerPC over a Dell.
Both of which will offer you a good CPU for number crunching as well as a decent gaming config. If gaming truly isn't in your future and you insist on Dell just look atan i7-930 build on Dell. Thats about all you'd need for CPU intensive work.
