Now, HP is giving away a free CPU till the end of April 2008 as well as a free Insight control or remote management products when purchased with a qualifying server. The two are worth around £300. More about that on the product page


I wonder if these support the 45nm Xeons Quads? Scan has a good range of them in stock and the 2.5GHz 12MB cache chips are £210 a pop. Install two of those and sell the 1.6s and you have the base for a serious rendering machine for about £750.

Expansion slot - Non-Hot Plug Models:
Slot 1 - full-length/full-height PCI-Express x16
Slot 2 - low-profile/half-height PCI-Express x8

Not bad except for the fact you have to Buy the 2nd CPU and then claim it back.

That and they are out of stock on the 2nd cpu :x

Whoops looks like they order them on request.
But the CPU costs nearly as much as the server!
