Hope all is well .... Everyone healthy?
I'm finally looking to replace my old Dell 790 and wanted to check back to see if there were any changes/suggestions as to a desirable/compatible system for MEP2016 Plus (or) later versions? I prefer Dell however a common dilemma with many companies is their infinite 'unwise' wisdom to reduce or eliminate upgradability in favor of 'Throw-Away's. However these slightly older Dell Precisions still provide 'upgradability' and should get the job done:
Aside from Processors, both machines are physically similar. The 3620 is a later model with an improved motherboard. I'll be loading Windows 10 Pro also installing a decent 'middle of the road' Nvidia Graphics Card and a min. of 16GB RAM. I work primarily with SD footage and I'm not a gamer. As before, I'll also install a Multi-Port PCI esata card for externals.
Dell Precision 3620 (Prod Date 2016-17) 3.40 GHz (or) 3.60 GHz Core i7 6th or 7th Gen
Dell Precision T1700 (Prod Date 2014-15) 3.30GHz (or) 3.40 GHz i5 (or) Haswell 4th Gen. (or) xeon?
