Hardware comparison

Hi everyone,

I have a question regarding the purchase of a desktop. Normally we work together with dell, but now I saw a Fujitsu Siemens with our supplier that looks really good.

Could you take a look at the specs and compare them? They cost around 1.350 euro. The price in the pdf of dell is the end-price.

The CPU in the fujitsu is a sandy bridge which looks better in the benchmarks. For the rest: More RAM, same GPU and SSD so I think this would be the one to go with..

Would this be enough to run Adobe CS5 and Archicad 15?

Thanks in advance!

The Fujitsu is an excellent system -- as you've already noted, the Sandy Bridge CPU is MUCH better than the older Xeon in the Dell.

Thansk for the feedback garycase! Would the GPU be good enough for the use of Archicad for the next few years? It's in the mid-range to the high-range.. http://www.nvidia.com/content/PDF/product-comparison/product-comparison-master-revised.pdf

The Quadro 2000 is fine for Archicad.    Although nVidia lists it as a "mid-range" card, Archicad lists it as one of their "high range" cards.  [http://archicadwiki.com/VideoCardsForArchiCAD15?action=show&redirect=Video+Cards#Recommended_Video_Cards_for_ArchiCAD_15 ]

Coupled with the excellent Sandy Bridge processor I'm sure that would be a VERY nice system for several years to come.
