    Hi Guys

    Can you help me spec a £600-£700 workstation?
    Minimum requirements are;
    I7 - 4 core/8 threads
    2 GB VGA Card
    16 GB RAM
    240-480 GB SSD

    Been out of the loop for too long that I need plenty of time, which unfortunately I didn't have, just to look into each components and their compatibility.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the response guys.

    I want to build a workstation that can handle multiple virtual machines running at the same time. I already have a copy of windows but I will also be using open source OS for the most part.

    Also, I already have a monitor, mouse and keyboard.

    Cheers
