[Best Buy] Dell Precision 5810 Tower Desktop, Intel Xeon, 32GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Win10 Pro. Refurbished ($425.00)

It looks like a good deal for a basic home workstation or server. I have one at home and a Precision 3610. These things are built like tanks. Super quiet too.

I've found a need for 32GB RAM desktops in the company.

...

Found it.

PassMark: 4500

Score is just south of an i5 4th gen, not bad overall.
32GB?for real? Are you running a lot of virtualized apps?

Processor from 2014? How does it compare to a modern i5?

Been running 48GB RAM on desktop since 2009, 32GB RAM on laptop since 2011. Then 128GB RAM on another desktop since 2013. Some of us had already moved on to 256GB+ RAM.

Interesting find...looking up its specs - has a f***load of PCIe slots. Lots of practical use cases (e.g. PFSense box with a whole bunch of interfaces - ethernet, SFP+ cards, RAID cards)

Memory looks to be registered - RDIMM. Good for server use.

Seems to be able to take a E5-2697 v3.

Also, the motherboard can do some overclocking if you're able to write a modified BIOS to it:

The OP system, plus CPU upgrade comes to about $1-$1.1k Decent workstation for the price.

(No dedicated graphics card though...but some can live with that for a development workstation and / or a compute node)

good for people who is having 4x32GB (2666) ECC RAM modules laying around. The Max speed config is 4x32=128GB on 2666, if you upgrade the CPU to E5-2673 v3.

Specs say it's a 2.8 GHz 4 core Xeon, so it's probably an E5-1603 V3, so quad core no multi-threading (similar to a mid-range Haswell i5). It apparently has a TPD of 140W, which seems bonkers for such a slow CPU...
