Used for data modelling need parallel processing, no need for graphics card - comments gratefully received. It's basically an upgrade to my i5 business pcs. Reliability is my main concern here: I used to buy dells and one failed after four weeks. (the mobo went)

Might as well get a graphics card for fun. With this build it's pretty much a gaming PC that's almost complete. Other than that you can get a 120 GB SSD.
