Data Analysis PC
I am looking to build or buy a new data analysis desktop PC. Primary use will be R statistical analysis software. I will access the desktop across the network using a laptop client, so it does not need a strong video capabilities. Budget is about $900. I am leaning toward the I7 processor and will seek to take advantage of as many Black Friday deals as possible. Thanks for your help.
Not sure if you are still looking for a reply (I was searching for research-related builds and stumbled on this thread).
you might find this useful if you haven't built your machine yet. I would de-emphasize the video card, but ramp up the memory and cpu if possible.
