If you are looking to merge routes to go very large, as in a couple of thousand kilometres of track (Sydney to Seymour with most of the branches *too big for a cdp*) I would recommend 32gb RAM at least, otherwise the merge will fail. I do only have an i5 6700, but would recommend an i7 of any description due to the extra processor cores.

    i5 normally have 4 cores these days, as do i7 some i7 do have more but they are the higher end more expensive ones. The major difference is in the cache the i7 have a similar deeper caches to the xeons.

    Due to package theft: Dell assures me that certified delivery confirmation is required by the driver, and that it will be delivered to me, and only me, and it will not be dropped off by a private rental van, delivering box's to any old wrong address, that oftentimes loses packages in our area.

    Does one really need:
    32 GB RAM ?
    16 GB RAM Is this perfectly sufficient for TS19 ?

    Does one really need:
    SSD: 1 TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD (Boot)
    HDD: 2 TB 7200RPM 3.5" SATA HDD (Storage) (Knowing that an 8 TB HDD reads faster, than a 1 TB HDD)

    Or is:
    SSD: 256 GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD (Boot), Is this too small for TS19 ?
    SSD: 500 GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD (Boot), Is this recommended for TS19 ?
