I have to made a setup for a PC that's going to be used to do heavy processing with ... Microsoft Excel ( -.-' )
Yep, I know how non-intelligent is make heavy processing with Excel, but I tried to convince them to use a real database engine and there's no chance to do that... so, returning to the hardware question...
We're between an i7-950 3.06GHZ 8MB with 4 cores 8 threads, and a AMD Phenom II 1090T X6 Black Edition.
Considering that memory and I/O doesn't make a bottleneck right now, it's mostly CPU processing, which one is the best to do this task?
I'm going to use a Windows 7 x64 and an Microsoft Office 2007 x64.
Thanks for your time!
