High-Spec PC (Oracle Server) - Where to source?

Have a friend who needs to run an Oracle Server for a small shop.

Essentially want to source him an i7/i9, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, Win10 Pro.

(I can see what spec CPU / RAM / SSD in more detail again).

Wondering where to start shopping for this? I'd prefer to be able to pick and choose online and just have a ready-made machine delivered to his door as there's nothing in it for me

Any recommendations?

out of curiosity, do you know why a small shop would need a local Oracle server like that?

Hi all,
Having a look at Dell, i've come across: https://www.dell.com/en-ie/work/shop...p/n018o5070sff

What I can't figure out is if I can add an additional 1TB SATA SSD. (There's a 256GB M2 PCIe already installed).

Or, if I can install another 1TB SSD other than SATA.

Not specifically a shop, bad description on my part. They use 3rd party software which has an Oracle backend.

Hi John,
You could try Elara.ie (They stock a tonne of stuff)
For something like this the warranty is probably as important as the hardware itself so keep that in mind.

Cheers.

Actually found something suitable straight away: https://www.elara.ie/productdetail.a...=WCE7PE89EAABU

Plenty of scope for HDD expansion if needed (although 1TB is plenty).

I'm not worried about RAID on SSD. As we'll be keeping daily images, i'd almost be recommending that in x years they purchase a new M2 SSD HDD and replace it as preventative maintenance.
