Additional Comments: just need to be able to run excel and quickbooks at the same time with a browser open. Also this computer will be on 24/7 for remote login, AC in office turns off weekends so cooling is a slight worry as it gets over mid 80s in office.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: time for an upgrade
I looked at the stickies for the office builds and I just don’t know how you can tell if it will run a duel monitor set up.
here is similar spec i build for several PC in my office, exactly the same dual monitor setup no need to get video card as onboard video from intel i3 is capable to handle everything. it comes with hdmi-DVI-VGA
- an SSD is a must for office to help multitask faster
- a cooling? i3 is already cool and efficient processor. i beliece you dont need any custom cooler anymore
- no video card will both reduce power and avoid heat dissipated
- compact micro atx case will help our office to reserve some space
