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)
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
