Cracking price on this Windows 7 SFF Desktop

Bargain Hardware (Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher) have been around for quite a while now. I've used this company multiple times for refurbed SSD's, Servers & Switches. Staff are very friendly and helpful, always willing to help you out.

This is ex-corporate equipment which has been removed from a fully working environment and refurbished by our in-house engineers, tested to be working perfectly.

This Refurbished HP 6005 Pro PC was originally designed for office use and offers great value for money. Equipped with a 3.00GHz AMD Phenom II x4 Quad Core Processor and 4B of high speed DDR3 Memory, this Desktop Computer will make light work of your everyday computing tasks. Whether it be social media, office or general web browsing this HP machine will handle it all.

We've installed a 250GB Hard Drive in the machine so that you can store up to 64,000 photos, 3,300 hours of music, 200 hours of video or any combination of these.

As a Microsoft Authorised Refurbisher we have pre-installed this PC with GENUINE Windows 7 Professional so this Small Form Factor PC is ready to use out of the box. It is also equipped with a DVD/CD drive so that you can watch movies and listen to music. We've included a USB Wireless N Wi-Fi dongle so that you can connect to the internet without any extra cables.

To help you get started we have installed this PC with Open Office, Anti-Virus and FoxIT PDF Reader. Open Office is a great alternative to Microsoft Office with the layout being almost identical and all the files being compatible. As a custom feature, we have added several major European languages into our versions of windows, meaning you can get going faster where ever you are in Europe.

Really good price. The Windows 7 licence alone (with free upgrade to Windows 10) makes it work it. Put in another 4gb ram and a half height 750ti graphics card and you'd be able to game.

All depends upon the condition of the machine I suppose.

Heat added

If anyone is looking for a cheap DP to HDMI adapter, I bought THIS last week for a similar HP model and it transmits video & audio no problem .

I'm 99.9% sure, they are stripped, cleaned out to look pretty much brand new inside.

How much space is inside?
I would like to add some hard drives

Unless you remove the DVD drive and get some sort of bay for mounting another HDD, I'm pretty sure you can only have the one HDD in the machine.

Just a note: Windows 10 (build 10240) was released to computer manufacturers yesterday. So looks like
July 29th will be the day for upgrade.

Extra £15 For The i5

Issue with that one is it's a first gen I5 and it's an nvs graphics card, so no gaming. Not sure which is the better CPU tbh.

The AMD X4 Quad Core would Benchmark higher than a first Gen i5-750, so I'd go with it. It looks like these guys do GFX too: ebay.co.uk/itm…116

1GB Card for 22 quid isn't bad.

Good deal for the i5 - I have a spare £100 graphics card and SDD that will make this a good gaming machine for the money

Nice - have some heat

and 4B of high speed DDR3 Memory


MASSIVE

not bad for a base machine (doing office work etc) heat

Overkill for htpc? Just cannot decide.

Have some heat, bargain hardware indeed.

The graphics card will only fit if it's half-height, I believe.

That's cheap, and better than my desktop (except for SSD) which runs Windows10 perfectly.

Right... im rubbish with computers.

Im needing something faster at present.

I use the computer for my signmaking company, mainly using Photoshop. illustrator and a Roland program to send to the printer. Im just needing to know if this will make a difference in speed to my Dell Dimiension 5150 - with 149gb of ram.

before sticking your graphics card inside the machine, make sure you realise the PSU of these are in the range of 240W. Your card has a min of 300W so your computer may hang or suffer. This type of compact machine may have a different kind of PSU form so you better look it up before going ahead.

make sure your graphics card has less power requirement than the psu or it wouldn't work...

Thanks for the quick reply, sorry would it just be faster and run programs better? This computer just seems sluggish if i have a few things open. Would it be fine with adobe programs?

Is this one OK to replace my ageing Dell Vostro 200?

Need DVI though for my monitor and this looks like it's only VGA or am I wrong?

The 750 cards are low power. You can get some which can solely be powered by the PCI bus

Indeed they are. And indeed you can. But they don't go lower than 300w as the recommended minimum. (I have just such a card - PCIe powered version)

You'd probably get away with it (depending what sort of draw the other components are making), but under load you may start to see glitching, freezing and hanging.

Is there space to squeeze in an SSD as well as the provided HD?

149gb of ram



Ahaha what?

Is there the option for SSd, im guessing this just makes it faster again?

Ok sorry im probably completely wrong, I think thats what ive got, Computer > Hard Disk Drives > Local Disk C > 62GB free of 149GB, is that right?

There should be 2 spaces for 3.5" drives, one under the PSU and one under the DVD. So it can take any 2 drives, SATA or SSD.

I don't own the 750 card but I looked up your card on nvidia website via google the min power requirment is indeed 300W on their official page. well it's just an advice, you can overlook it and take the risk. I initially tempted to buy one of these compact machines until I found out the PSU is not sufficient to drive a mid range card that I'm still keeping. That's why I don't go ahead. The safer way is to replace it with a better PSU with more juice. You may have to do some research on it.

I know the cpu, an equivalent of the 945phenom, cannot be OC as they are for commercial use but can easily be done from the MB, we had one OC at 3600mhz no problem. How strange, the original prices were twice that the retail one at the time.

So if there is only one drive bay then I'd follow MisterDeeds and replace the current one with an SSD. The use either a USB drive or NAS for additional storage.

I'm not sure if there is an option on the sellers page but an SSD can be purchased separately. And yes an SSD will make it faster again and I tend to put then in every machine I supply to family these days as it makes a big difference. However by your own admission of being rubbish with computers it sounds like you would need a hand to set all this up as it requires some technical knowledge. If you are around the Fareham area I'd give you a hand.
