Need desktops for business..


Jul 23, 2005
Hey everyone my company want to order a few Dell. So im wondering which desktop do you guys think is more suitable for what we're looking for. We'll be mainly running Oracle on it. Not very heavily but still need a decent setup in order to it to run smoothly. I configured the Dell 5150C, everything is pretty standard I only changed the chip to 820 and Win Home to Pro.

Base System Dimension(TM) 5150C Intel(R) Pentium(R) D 820 Processor w/Dual Core Technology (2.80GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800MHz FSB) Intel(R) 945G Express Chipset

Genuine Windows(R) XP Professional SP2 Edition

3 Years Next Business Day (8x5) Onsite Response (Parts + Labour)

1GB (2x512) NECC Dual Channel DDR2 533MHz SDRAM Memory

128MB PCI Express(TM) x16 ATI Radeon(TM) X600 SE w/ DVI/TV-out

160 GB SATA II 3.0 Gb/s

You guys think this is good enough to run Oracle?

The Dell line up has been upgraded. Now you can get a Core 2 Duo instead cheaply (tho it's only the 6300, it is leaps and bounds better than the PD820) Everything looks good, it should serve you well. Just be sure to order XP Pro with the re-install discs so you can wipe the factory installed OS and all the bloatware with it and install a fresh OS. Good luck, hope all goes well.
