This is a micro atx case a lot of powerful cards won't physically fit in here

Seems a good deal but any considering ordering may want to get a confirmation of processor installed, the spec listed is a bit vague about what is actually in it..

more accurate ;-)

would imagine it would also accept Windows Home Server OS - good deal for someone wanting to set up a home or small network or even just to set up a seedbox

only problem I imagine is that it needs registered RAM to run. Anyway a nice fileserver, media server or similar

What would stop this accepting XP or Vista, its just a PC like any other???

HP Embedded 4 Port SATA Controller with embedded RAID (0,1,5)

This could make it a good option for a file server; a lot cheaper than a 4 bay NAS

You could stack this out with the full 8Gb from Crucial for £82.75 inc of VAT & Del.

crucial.com/uk/…RAM

Thats £10 Per Gb, Which I think is an OK price, might be able to get this cheaper looking around...

Will this definately accept a PCI-e Graphics card? I know Dell 'Crippled' the connector on some of its low end servers so you could not use it as a gaming rig? anyone actually tried this out.

Cheers!

If you can find one in stock,it may be for some, a better choice to go for the HP ProLiant ML110 G5. It should only set you back about £20 more (i paid £194 delivered a month ago) then this and its got.

Dual-Core Xeon 3065 2.33GHz
1GB RAM

Im running one as a HD streaming server. All i added to it was another 2GB of RAM and a couple of 750GB HDD's in raid, came in much cheaper then buying a NAS box. More usefull too.

ps, it very quiet too, passive heatsink on the CPU and one fan on the back of the PC.

I've got an ML110 G5 running Windows Home Server, and it's definitely microATX. There are 4 hard drive bays accessible from the front, and the drives slot in on rails using special screws (supplied). There are also 2 optical bays.

bellamy_47;4134579

It takes full height cards. There are even retainers at the front of the case for full length cards. The hard drive bays don't come down as far as the PCI slots.

I've been on the lookout for a laptop or desktop to run Flight Sim, surf web, play i-tunes etc. I would be ok fitting graphics card and RAM and installing XP, but is this a better option over a normal desktop PC? Is the processor any good?
What's the main difference between this and a normal desktop once you add in more RAM, graphics card etc.

These have pciex8 lanes i think that the ram is normal ddr2 and its a server if you want a cheap pc this is not the answer its meant to be stuck in a cuboard with no monitor or keyboard and mouse and be accessed via terminal services over the network.

There has been that many cheap home pc's this week why would you want to use this but for a sever decent price.

I've not seen any desktop PC deals posted here this week, only the one for the Acer Netbook.

I have a ML110 at work, it is fine as a file/data server with an extra gig or two of ram - however the graphics card is absolutely terrible.

I ordered a PCI-E graphics card but after cracking open the case, it turns out that the card slot on the motherboard was the wrong way round!.. fine for internal SATA cards, but absolutely useless for a graphics card where the VGA/DVI sockets need to be on the back of the case!

Do you mean the PCI slot? This is for 3.3v cards only and is keyed the opposite way round to a 5v slot - if you had a 5v only PCI card it shouldn't fit.

nice post, cheers..

ABout £50 more than these offers started at last time - and about £70 more than you get them for shopping around.

Why did they increase with the credit crunch?

snoopy18;4144925

Surely this is better value http://www.ebuyer.com/product/155468



I agree for a desktop m/c this is one of the best deals around. It doesn't come with o/s but most folk have a copy of XP on an old machine.
Just bought one of these and installed a new x1650pro video card I picked up on ebay for 17 quid. Good enough for me. :-D

I got one last time round when they were only Dual core and 60gb, this is a worth the extra £70

These servers also take non-ECC memory too and work perfectly OK. Mine is running W2K3 x64 and never gets switched off. Better than a'normal' PC in this respect. Good deal.

Like PCPaulH says, it takes regular DDR2 without any issues - just don't mix it with ECC.

In terms of noise, it sounds like a hair dryer for the first 20 seconds of switch on, then its relatively quiet.

Just ordered one for the dev guys at the office. They seemed very happy! Voted hot and rep added!

Deal gone... still looks to be around at thehut for a quid or so more...
