Which of these Desktop's Performance is Recommended to Use

Background:
I'm looking for a new desktop computer and I don't know the desktops' performance is enough for my to work.

Fist computer:
HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Tower (4QC44EA)
*Intel® Core™ i7-8700 (3,2 GHz, 12 MB cache, 6 core)
*Intel® UHD Graphics 630
*16 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 X 16 GB)
*512 GB PCIe® NVMe™ SSD

Second computer:
HP Z4 G4 workstation
*Intel® Xeon® W2123 (3.6 GHz, 8.25 MB cache, 4 cores)
*16 GB DDR4-2666 ECC SDRAM (2 x 8 GB)
*256 GB HP Z Turbo-enhet PCIe® SSD

I often use 3 x Visual Studio 2015, SQL server development edtion, 1 browser with many tabs and other ongoing application at the same time.

Question:
Is the first computer's performance desktops' performance enough to use or do I need to use the second computer that is used for CAD modelling?

Other information:
*I only gonna have SDD harddrive.
*All computer should have at least 15 GB memory
*I use the computer in a daily basis and it should working at least 4 years.
*In the future, I maybe gonna need to use it for android development, NoSQL, Docker and Kubernetics.

Thank you!

Either should be good enough for your needs

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Which of these Desktop's ...

Though as both are from Hardly professional I wouldn't expect great performance they simply lack the hardware and enough spec's to tell us what they actually are.

For instance

*16 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 X 16 GB)

Is 1 RAM Module so it's running in Single Channel Mode which is slower than Dual Channel Mode so it would be better to have 2 X 16 GIG RAM which would be better for performance and your needs.

However saying that depending on how complicated your CAD Drawings are both should be good enough for now to do what you have listed but I would say I wouldn't be looking at any Desktop that I wanted for a few years unless it had at least 32 GIG of RAM and more if possible but then I use High End Systems that require the performance.

I should also add while SSD Drives are fast they simply do not last as long as a Platter Drive so I wouldn't be expecting any SSD Drive to be a long term piece of equipment but a short term bit of kit that will need replacing in a couple of years.
