I have a FUJITSU SIEMENS CELSIUS R640
, with 1 processor DualCore Intel Xeon 5110, 1600 MHz (6 x 267), 3 gigs of RAM that I bought a year ago with 80 euro. I was thinking to throw it - although it works perfectly - and buy a cheaper i3 or something. I do not care at all about games, I use the computer for office applications, but in the hard way: several sessions of Word, processing in Acrobat, ScanTailor, Corel etc etc ...
The upgrade would cost me about 100-120 euros and would be
2 x Intel Xeon E5345
2x4GB ECC Fully Buffered CL5 DDR2-667MHz PC2-5300 1.8V DIMM
The question is whether it is worth doing the upgrade or i can get more joy for the money if I buy a cheap i3 for 220 euros maximum.
