View Full Version : CPU, computer build for Excel Calculations

2015-12-19, 02:56 PM
I need some advice regarding a new PC build. And I can't find the answer on general hardware forums. I need recommendations based on experience, so the best place to ask my question is here .I know it is somehow an outside topic but please bear with me.
My build will be mainly for general heavy office work.
I'm looking for a durable (5-7 years), on-budget build.
What I will not do with this build:
NO GAMING NO VIDEO/Photo Editing rendering ripping...
NO overclocking
What I will do with this build:
Long heavy text editing: all Microsoft office suite with heavy usage mainly Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
Excel: heavy complex financial calculation with spreadsheets not exceeding 100MB.
1080p, 4K video playing.
Browsing: 6 windows of (Chrome, Firefox) with 20 tabs each.
I use software's like R, SPSS, Macro's in Excel and Maybe some Matlab in the future.
I just want to be able to do (in a comfortable way) some complex (but on a small scale) calculations.
I really need your help, guys. Thank you all in advance.

As I said in reply to you on the other forum where you have posted this, you have not said what the budget is, so how is anyone really meant to advise?

Normally people build machines for Gaming or Video Editing, never seen anyone build for Excel haha. Any machine under $150 is Great.
