My client has a Dell 980 computer. It was purchased new about 5 years ago. This computer is running Windows 7 pro. I feel it needs to be updated. Of course, the client does not want to do this because it will cost money . The pandemic has not been kind to his finances.
I have found another used computer which may be superior to the one he has now.
The existing computer: The Dell Optiplex 980 has an Intel i7 cpu (2.93Ghz) with 8 gigs of RAM.
The proposed computer: Dell Precision T3620 workstation with E3-120 V5 3Ghz 4 core. It has 8 gigs of RAM installed. It has Windows 10 Pro installed.
My question: How would you rank the Dell T3620 as compared to the 980?
I can't keep up with processor types and speeds so I need your help to guide me.
If the Dell Precision is superior then I would add another 8 gigs of memory to it.
