Hi all, if I have budget of $400 for a desktop (just the desktop to replace my existing one, keyboard/mouse and monitor still work fine), what's my best option? I need it mainly to run Visual Studio + SQL Express for a development and I don't do gaming or video rendering. It would be nice to be able to run a virtual machine (with Linux guest) even if I have to close all running applications while running the virtual machine.
Would Intel i3 be enough for that task? My existing machine is about 12 years and I am pretty sure it is an ATX motherboard. So if I build a new one, I assume motherboard form factor doesn't change much and should fit in my current case. I am not sure if I have to buy a new PSU.
I am considering a used PC like this as well: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Dell-Optiplex-9020-USFF-i5-4590s.... Given it is 4th Gen i5, will it run Visual Studio + SQL Express without struggling?
Thank you for your feedback.
