I recently purchased a Dell Precision T3610 to replace my Dell Optiplex 780. This CPU is a 4core/8thread and stock clock is at 3.7 GHz and boosts to 3.9 GHz. Its performance is equivalent to the other high end Ivy-Bridge i7 with the only difference being its support for ECC ram. Compared to the Core2 Duo E8600 in my Optiplex, its a vast improvement to say the least.


Excellent

it can be found for cheap in old workstations and you can put a graphics card in and then it is basically a gaming pc
