Windows 7: Custom PC!

W7 Pro 32bit


1. Would W7 Pro 32 bit OEM DVD key work on W10 Pro 64 bit.........I don't think...your views?

2. Which version of MS Off 2016, would you recommend, since I mostly use MS Word?

3. As to UPS, am using APC 650, is good, gives me a 1 hour of backup on my old PC, would upgrading to 750 be fine, since requires 3 hrs for a full recharge vs. 8 hrs for 650?

4. My PC tech pro recommended me to get a Dell Optilpex 3050, since am not into gaming with a few mods, like changing the drives, increasing RAM to 16, etc. His views are am wasting money since am not into gaming....his thoughts are this is a great machine but for gamers mainly?

Hoping to hear from you...

Thanks again!


I might plan getting a 2 desktops, the one you recommended and a Optiplex till that gets built...

Yes a key can work for 32 or 64 bit, that doesn`t matter.

I don`t bother with Microsoft Office, just get what you need.

And as far as the parts you listed, hey, if you can afford them then build it.

I would never ever recommend a Dell to anyone.

Dells are not bad, but it's better if it's custom built.

If it`s just for office work than just get what you can afford and want to spend.

For example, you don`t need to get a dedicated video card if the CPU graphics will be good enough for what you need it to do.

You could also get a cheaper Power Supply, and just 8GB of memory.

The monitor you picked out will be expensive too, if you can get by with a 1920 x 1080 monitor than just get one of them.

It`s all about how much you want to spend

Thanks AddRAM for posting your expert suggestions.

1. Fine. I'll leave the video card for now, if I ever feel the need would have the option on the board.

2. Care to post a link for a PSU?

3. Is crucial ballistic better than corsair vengeance? OR what would be your pick?

4. Regarding monitor, I'd want a crispy FHD enough......I was thinking of getting a QWD/2K. Occasionally I do watch a movie or add my Android device to it. Care to post some links.

Money isn't a issue want a custom built that would last a while.......

Thanks again

Another question is core i5 9400F 8/9th gen good enough or should get i7 8/9th?

Thanks again.
