If you add a video card to this (~ $250) you will have a pretty high end gaming pc. This is a good deal IMO.
Can the power supply handle that? I don’t know much about building computers.
Looks good, but it’s not very expandable. Compared to a Dell OptiPlex 9020 in the same price range:
2 memory slots vs 4
Max RAM of 16GB vs 32GB
1 PCIe x16, 1 PCIe x1, vs 1 PCIe x16, 1 PCIe x16 wired x4, 1 PCIe x1, 1 PCI
No unused drive bays, vs an extra 3 1/2" and an extra 5 1/4" bays
1 VGA and 1 HDMI, vs VGA and 2 DisplayPort
2 USB 3.0 and 4 USB 2.0, vs 4 and 6
90-day warranty vs 3-year (both manufacturer warranties)
On the positive side, this comes with 12GB, which saves upgrade cost. That puts it about $100 less than the 9020 I got last month.
Yeah - what’s the deal with the 16GB max?
To be fair, though, the CPU retails for $310, so…
After reading through previous comments it looks like you’d have to upgrade the power supply also. Currently 300 watts
In short, no. You’ll want a minimum of a 600W PSU (power supply unit) for a gfx card for that price range mentioned above. I’d say go with 750W but always check what your graphics card requires.
Is there really no room for an additional internal drive? I don’t trust the woot specs and couldn’t find any pics on the web. Just seems so ridiculous to me if it’s so.
3 pics of essentially the same thing. Woot, how about a nice centerfold pic? While stats are all well and good (when correct), the geek in me wants to see what space I’d have to reconfigure stuff if I were to buy it.
Oh look, it’s the monolith from 2001 A Space Odyssey.
