I was looking for a reliable, reasonably fast PC for a triple monitor system (workstation, not gaming!). This looks excellent value for money to me because:

- Has triple monitor output (1x vga, 2x display port)
- Ebay has cheap used ECC memory all over (as I am planning to extend it)
- Lots of space in the case, easy maintenance
- PowerEdge considered quite reliable
- PSU 80+, 290w
- Haswell CPU, performance is just like most i7 quad Haswell's.
- Tons of USB

Reviews looks good too.

What you also should consider:
- No OS.
- No optical (you can get one for a tenner)
- Probably not the most silent you can get.
- The PSU is 290w, so you won't build a dream gaming machine out of it :P (But you can consider something reasonable, such as the Maxwell NV 750)

Specs:
Intel Xeon E3-1225 v3 3.2GHz (3.6GHz boost) Quad-Core, 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3 ECC UDIMM, 1TB 7200rpm LFF SATA, Gigabit LAN, 290W PSU, 1 Year Warranty

op maybe some more specs about the machine? Like CPU, ram, etc.

Edit: clicked through link, the CPU is E3-1225 v3, performance more of an i5 (non-k) rather than an i7. For servers, hyper-threading would be more useful I reckon.

Specs added, thanks!
On single thread, it seems to perform equivalent as i7 on the matching freq. But you are right, HT seems to give notable advantage on multi-thread applications (I am surprised too why a server cpu does not support it).

Does this offer a full drac/ilo type function?
#4
the answers lie in the ark... Intel does this all the time (amd is no stranger either) they release 15 or so different products even on their server side they cut a lot of the good bits. So err on the side of caution when specing up a machine.

I would have thought HT may cause some interesting issues on servers running VMs

no iDrac, AMT only

That's a lot of bang for the buck, quite tempting. It is even cheaper in Germany, this shop sells it for 350€ + 20€ shipping to the uk, which is less than 300£.
