Summary: I bought this to replace my ailing 7 year old Core2Duo and boy what an upgrade. My desktop at home has now turned into a quasi server, so I wanted to make sure I could add enough internal storage, and still have the ability play my old games, do some virtualization, run my plex server, and video...
Pros: - Affordable. Even though this is last year's model, the price point for a low-to-mid Xeon makes this an excellent bargain. It's still faster, spec wise, than most high end i7's regardless. - Case is in a class of its own. 100% Screwless. Comes with ALL parts you'll need to max out the hard drive...
Cons: - Graphics Card. The graphics card with this system is NOT a gaming card. It is a high end workstation graphics card. Yes it will play *some* games, it is more geared for media (audio/video) editing, not games. However, the card itself is a beautiful card and powers my 24" LEDs nicely. I'm not mu...

Summary: I bought this workstation for my small business not realizing the it does not come with a graphics card. I would not have it bought for that reason alone because of the inconvenience and downtime involved in getting a graphics card from a third party.
Summary: Although I have recently purchased an HP z420 workstation, I have not purchased the product in this listing. I would warn potential buyers that the listing states (7.13) that the system includes a Tesla C2075 co-processor as graphics card.
Summary: Came with the Video card removed from the computer didn't even have the cover plate, so obviously it had one that had been removed. Also beware of the 64 GB of Ram keep reading to see that its only 6. Really can get a better machine for much less other places.
Summary: This computer is amazing. It is very robustly built and blazingly fast with the 6-core xeon processor, and with the addition of an Nvidia Quadro 4000 graphics card and another 16 gig of 1600 MHz memory, it runs Autodesk applications like Maya and Mudbox like a breeze. Very pleased with it!!
Summary: Kauf: 21.08.2012 – 1.360,46 € problemlos über Amazon. Bis jetzt (Nov.2012) bin ich mit der Wahl zufrieden. Der Rechner arbeitet schnell und ist mit einer Asus Ati Radeon EAH6850 DirectCU–Grafikkarte relativ leise.
