Whats a Desktop Deal:

There are many factors you need to take into account in order to make something a deal. Manufacturer, Product line, Specs and warranty are usually what to look at when figuring that out. You need to consider prices as well, sometimes you get a price so hot that it doesn't matter what company it is.

Generally speaking here are the guidelines for Intel processors:

i3 8th Gen processor - Under $300 is usually a hot deal, Under $350 is decent
i5 8th Gen Processor - Under $400 is a Usually a Hot Deal
i7 8th Gen Processor - Under $600 is a Usually Hot Deal

to be continued....

I didnt notice anything don't have time to search around
you can benchmark the processors at cpubenchmark.net it should at least be close to 5000, you can find a good i3 in that range and since it doesn't have the name i5 it will be cheaper if you think you found something you can post it and i'll try to look at it
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Is this overkill for an office machine? https://www.dropbox.com/s/y0d7xzn194hq1gz/Screenshot%202015-06-10%2011.04.50.png?dl=0
Can it support two screens?

Good choice

If you can get SSD for about $85 each and have someone change them out it would make that a great long lasting computer
