Another office workhorse

29 Aug 2011
Hi everyone,

I'm looking to build a work PC for normal office duties plus graphics work (CorelDraw suite). I will connect two monitors, but will rely initially on the built-in graphics capabilities. The intention is to end up with a "snappy" system and will be running VirtualBox (hence the 16Gb RAM). Overclocking is not an initial consideration, but I can upgrade the cooling later.

Should I change anything?
