I am from IBTE Sultan Bolkiah Campus, here to tell you that the goal/missions of the school of ICT is that to learn about computer systems and other technology equipment so that we can learn to make new technology stuff in the future.
The purpose of Multimedia-Lab
The purpose of this is so that new students can get into the subject easily without the need to buy an expensive. But the current multimedia we have needs an upgrade since its very outdated. Currently we have 22 PCs in the multimedia lab.
Intel Core i3 540 – This intel has the lowest cores which is dual-cores, meaning it has 2 cores and are slow at multitasking but also a budget CPU to buy. It has LGA1156 socket, 3.06 GHz clock speed and a Smart Cache of 4 MB.
Intel Core i5 3470 – This intel mostly has quad-cores, meaning it has 4 cores and are the best CPU for a budget build. The only i5 that has a dual-core is the i5-4570T it has dual-cores instead of quad. It has LGA1155 socket, 3.2 GHz clock speed and a Smart Cache of 6 MB.
Intel Core i7 7700 – This intel CPU varies from quad-cores to octa-cores, which make this the best CPU next to the new i9. It is also expensive. It has LGA 1151 socket, 3.6 GHz clock speed, and a Smart Cache of 8 MB.
Recommend: Intel Core i7 any gen
This is because, we as IT students require good CPU to work on our multimedia

So, if we were to make this computer, we will have
Graphics Card: Nvidia RTX 2080 TiCPU: Intel Core i7 any gen (preferably 8th gen)
RAM: Corsair’s Vengeance 8GBx2 (16GB)
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Z
HDD: WD VelociRaptorMonitor: Asus MG248Q
Keyboard: Topre Realforce 104UBS Silent variable
Camera: Logitech C922 Pro Stream
Speaker: Logitech Z623 (Optional)
Microphone: Blue Yeti (Optional)
Mouse: Logitech MX Master 2S
Projector: Philips Pico PPX4010 (Required but only 1 since its use is for the whole class)
With this, our multimedia will be future proof for maybe 7-10 years.
Since in the internet, it says that newer i7 gen should be able to stay longer in a much more acceptable price than the i9. But the RTX 2080 Ti is future proof since it’s a newly released graphics card. Sadly, when I went to NetCom KB, I haven’t found any Nvidia RTX series yet. But we can order it from online.
