Don't see why not

So all i would need to do is install a graphics card ( pci-e ) which i have and more memory and install XP and i would be set to go ?

Looks like a decent PC for the price but just want to make sure i can use as a normal pc and not just a server.

Very interested in getting this.

can someone confirm this because i would like to order one before it expires please

No, it IS a server.

Look at the other posts for this on HUKD, it has been posted many times before, you will find better explinations in those posts as to why this is NOT a desktop.

from what i can see from this thread is that it will work as a home PC

Just checked out the post's most say you can run them as a desktop the only problem seems to be you need a USB sound card, from what I have read you can use a 16X PCI-E card so upgrading the video card's not a problem Ram is cheap as well 4gb is £40 so go for it seems a cheap desktop to me.

Thanks for that. Think i will go for it. I can always change out the mobo if things don't work out (i think)

So will i need ECC ram then ? Can someone point me in the right direction to some please ?

@ £20.69 for 2gb ecc (the good stuff) and yes I know this server will will take Non ECC but at this price come on

I've ordered this Crucial 4 Gb. RAM kit from dabs for mine @ £31.37 + delivery :-

]http//ww…000

I ordered mine along with a monitor so delivery was negligible. If you only want to order the memory it might be cheaper to get it from Crucial direct - ]http//ww…/uk

Also you don't necessarily have to use a USB sound card, a PCI or PCI-Express one will do.

Sorry for my mis-info, i assumed it was the 110 when I seen the ProLiant name :oops:

Just ordered but memory is out of stock at crucial

IMO I would have paid the little extra and got the ECC more stable on servers but the stuf you have ordered should work fine.

There was no stock on the ECC memory. That's why i got what i did

Thats a shame but I would have still waited Crucial have a 10% discount on a 8GB purchase which would have made the RAM around £69.00 including quidco.

Hopefully in early January you'll see the stock of memory start to increase again - only delay really just now is the dreaded Christmas postal shipping just now!

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:

Hello, i used a pci-e sound card and run window xp but failed.

Says no audio device but drivers are there and enabled "working properly".

I want to try a USB sound card but worried that it will still not work!

Who has successfuly used G5 to have sound? Please give me some sugguestions!

Thanks

Audigy will work.
