Should have refurbished in the title, plus it only has 90 days warranty .
#4
Refurbished not in title. Cold.
#5
Official supported operating systems and driver availability. Be worth looking into more if you want to run Windows 7 .

» Microsoft Windows 2000 Pro
» Microsoft Windows Vista Business (32-bit)
» Microsoft Windows Vista Business (64-bit)
» Microsoft Windows XP Professional
» Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
» Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 (AMD64/EM64T)
» Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (AMD64/EM64T)
» Red Hat Linux 7.2
» Red Hat Linux 7.3

Also it takes ECC memory which is expensive so would also check if ecc can be disabled in the Bios on this one in case you wanted to add more
#6
Looks good to me for a budget conscious buy.
#7
added refurb

the video card supports 2 monitors
so its gonna be a great desktop for home working for me

The processor is about 7 years old. Did you think it'd be new?

I got one of these (slightlty slower processor - 3.2 and no monitor admittedly) for £50 inc VAT and delivery from SCH Trade a couple of months ago...

Runs win 7 x64 pro without issue.

Great workstation for normal office stuff

Check out the other sch trade desktops before going for this - the price isn't great for what it is!

Better off getting this for 30 quid, ultra-slim desktop. You can upgrade the CPU to dual core.

Try putting a decent graphics card in there then.

Yeah.. I'm sure you could ram a modern Dual core CPU into that ancient motherboard. I'm guessing a Hammer is your tool of choice for this job :p
Even if you somehow managed it.. An ancient dual core processor isn't going to make it much faster with only 512mb ram

Can't see where he said that a modern dual core would be able to be installed. And a nice threaded application that does not need a lot of ram would probably run loads faster on a dual conroe.....

Was tempted until I looked up the processor benchmark vs say a core 2 duo.
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/midlow_range_cpus.html
Think its the Intel Xeon 3.60GHz on this page the Opteron 150 came out about the same time and according to the reviews it beat it. They get around 590 passmark
A Core2 duo above 2ghz can more than double that score a mother board with a core2 would be easy to upgrade as well.

Tier1 look good though

Hey I use this machine at work!!
I've actually just had it refurbished too to speed it up- IT put Win7 x64 on it and it runs well for my office / engineering programs. Could of course be faster for running analyses.

One the downside, the box is f******* enormous, so heavy & it probably uses a shedload of electricity! Our office must be wasting so much electricity using old workstations for basic office working!

A purchase link to you're recommended CPU which will fit this motherboards socket (I doubt you can buy these new) and a benchmark link to show a decent performance boost would be a much more constructive way of backing up your claim than insulting me :|

What? I don't even..
Is this to highlight the value for money (0 lol) or what? I don't get it oO

Needless to say that is NOT the processor you'll be getting in this rig

How would these be fixed for use as a Hackintosh? Weren't the earlier Mac Pros using a similar CPU?
#23
Xeon are decent processors built for servers can withstand the harshest punishments.
#24
There is not much point in buying this over a newer machine. The graphics card and RAM are workstation class - all this means is that the graphics drivers are tested and certified for some CAD applications, and that the RAM automatically corrects for errors caused by the odd cosmic ray- so that your simulation of a bridge is correct and the real thing doesn't fall down once built. These features wouldn't help a PC much for everyday tasks, and it will consume a lot of energy whilst doing so.

You would have to do some considerable research before considering it for a Hackintosh. Drivers are the biggest issue, that's why most people build their PC just to be a Hackintosh (Using compatible parts only)

Even so this machine would run a pretty old Mac OS version. I'm not a massive fan of Macs in general but I think older versions were worse than XP in many ways
They did improve significantly later though
#26
At the moment, I have a decent Dell ultrabook running windows 7, which has 4GB of ram and an AMD Neo K325 Dual Core Processor. For the vast majority of things I use my laptop for - office work, internet browsing and such, it performs flawlessly, with HD video running without a hitch.

A problem I have though is that I'm getting into photography and am wanting to use really intensive programs like photshop and lightroom. Photoshop generally runs ok, as does lightroom. But both are tediously slow to operate. I'm assuming my processor is just not up to the job.

Would it be possible to buy a base desktop like this which would be powerful enough to run these properly for a reasonable price? I've got monitors, proper hard drives and so on.
#27
Guys... this is a PENTIUM 4 XEON which is not the quad core eight thread monster veganway linked earlier. These things are ancient single core power hogs. Waste of money IMO.
#28
That Xeon probably draws a ton of power. Not worth it.
#29
I had a similar twin xeon hyperthreading set up with a slightly faster graphics card. Four processes and massively stable helped by the ECC memory.

However, they run only 25% faster than the HP (£110 quid back) cube server as supplied, and despite running for months without ever needing reset, the power they eat is about four to seven times that of the cube. The warranty is probably irrelevant, as they basically are indestructible, but the fan noise is high, and the box is big.

Brilliant machines in their day, but the cube with a decent graphics card will outperform this, and use so little power that it will end up paying for itself in no time. OK there is no monitor with the cube - but with the power this uses will cost you a new monitor in value in a year if it runs 24/7 on low intensity activity.


Here is the real comparison rating for the xeons used.
