I own an IT company and want to build a budget PC for my developers. I looked up at different variants and liked the following two:

i5 3470 3.2GHZ + 16GB DDR3 RAM + Nvidia 710 Graphics with 2GB RAM + 1.0 TB Hard Disk

i5 7400 3.0Ghz + 8 GB DDR4 RAM + 120 GB SSD + 1.0 TB Hard Disk

PC will be used by developers running Linux, Apache, MySQL/PosGres, NodeJS, Php, Python, Sublime Text/PhpStorm/Visual Studio etc., on Ubuntu 18.04

Won't be running VMs or CUDA.

Not sure which one will perform better. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
 
an i3-8300 ($137 on Amazon) is $20-$30 less expensive than an i5-7400...if ordering new parts....

An i5-8400 (6c/6t) is but $189, $9 more than a new i5-7400...

And last, but not least, the R5-2400G is only $136...
