Does this come with ECC or Non-ECC memory?
I bought this in September 2015, and it came with non-ECC. I upgraded to 16GB with a “Crucial 8GB kit (4GBx2) DDR3-1600” and it has worked splendidly.
Bought this computer in September 2015 and I have been very happy.
The computer came with the weird DMS-59 connector. A “Genuine Dell DMS-59 to Dual DVI and DMS-59 to Dual VGA Y Splitter Cable” lets me run my two best legacy VGA monitors side by side.
I upgraded to 16GB memory easily with a Crucial 2x4GB kit. I also changed to a Samsung 250GB SSD drive for booting.
This computer runs Linux usually, but I can dual boot to Windows 10 (or the Windows 7 that it came with). Most often, I run Windows 10 inside a VirtualBox VM (which is why I upgraded to 16GB RAM… so the Windows 10 VM gets a full 8GB). With an SSD and tons of RAM, there is never any waiting when running either Linux or Windows. It is fast!
This is a workstation-class computer, meaning lots of drive bays and business graphics power… it’ll run games great, but isn’t meant for that. I loaded all the drive bays and SATA connections with old drives, just because I can.
My one nit is that I wish it came with USB 3 instead of the older USB 2. I yearn for more speed at times.
This is a very solid computer, and complete steal for the price. I’d buy another, but this will serve my needs for the forseeable future.
