  • Should have had them get you a Precision.

    I bought a Precions 610 (a dual capable box running Xeons) for $245 (total with shipping, it's in my journal stuff I think) off an auction site. I was able to get a second P-II 400 for $30, a box specific heat sink for $15 (the heat sink that came with it would not fit), and an additional 512MB of ECC registered RAM for $100.

    Of course, I would think that your Optiplex has something like a P4 1+ GHz in it, but a workstation class box (scsi hard drives and such) really makes things pop. I would also think it would be a cast iron bitch to PO a 2-3 year old box.

    At least you get to run linux on it, viva la penguin!
