Refurbished Dell Optiplex 755 SFF - Walmart - $228

Includes:
2.0 GHz Intel Core2Duo processor (E4400 or E2180)
2 GB RAM
320 GB Hard Disk Drive
Windows 7 Professional

PNY Optima 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2-800 RAM - $45
Get this to replace the current RAM installed (32-bit operating system).

This config should give you what you're looking for without having to build a system from scratch.

I have a computer with an Intel E2180 and I recommend against buying a computer with it. Even for basic work, the E2180 (E4400 isn't much better) can noticeably lag behind unless you have an SSD. That Phenom II x4 is between three and four times faster with all four cores counted and is around 35-50% faster per core.

the phenom seems to be a logical choice. In this case, the I3 and other intel processors are beyond the budge or need.

EDIT: It's between three and four times faster, not five and six times faster.

What's wrong with it? It's an OS. The only worthwhile difference between it and the Pro version is that it can't address more than 16GiB of RAM.

If OP needs to be able to do that, then OP can get the ~$40 more expensive Pro version. Either way.

so your suggestion for "off the shelf business pc" (the title of this post)
is one the op builds them self?

define "off the shelf"- Ready-made, available from merchandise or in stock, as opposed to a special order. For example, Sometimes you can get a better discount by buying an appliance off the shelf.

There are dozens of companies that build custom builds with your choice of parts. Try finding a better non-custom deal with high-quality parts that doesn't sacrifice even this lower-end level of performance. Maybe you'll find one, maybe not.

There is a RAM kit in my builds... Love how you're trying to be an ass over stupid things. You ran out of minor things to argue, so now you're making crap up. Real nice of you. There is a 1.5V 2x2GiB G.Skill DDR3-1333 9-9-9-24 kit in each of my links. A F3-10600CL9D-4GBNS model, to be more specific.
