    great prices. especially the i7. Only 7 left.

    These 990s are getting pretty long in the tooth now though

    • +1 vote

      Chuck an SSD in them and they'd be ok for basic stuff. I've got an i7 under my desk in the office running virtuals for testing and it goes ok.

    •  

      We have 3 of these at work still as "portable ESX boxes" and they work a treat, well until they get dropped, but that's another story.

      For "average desktop" usage these things are still fine.

  •  

    I ordered their 9010 i7 3770 which is still in stock if of interest.
    Deciding if better to use their upgrade to SSD or do myself (and reinstall) - thoughts?

    •  

      its not hard to do it yourself. Only involves opening the case, putting the SSD into an empty space (use bluetack or velcro) and attaching SATA + Power cable.

      •  

        yeah thanks, not worried about doing it. think its worth having the original HDD but was thinking about someone else's time doing the OS. time to check SSD deals :)

        • +1 vote

          @scratches:

          I bought the 9010 last time and put a Samsung SSD in it. Within the case the HDD tray that comes with a 3.5" HDD installed has provision to add a 2.5" SSD underneath it. Very easy.

          With both drives attached I used the free version of EaseUS to clone the HDD to the SSD. Now I use the SSD for OS/programs and the HDD for bulk data.

        •  

          @dka: Thanks for mentioning that free cloning software. I bought 9020 from the last eBay deal and I have an SSD that I bought before that and never used, so I wasn't sure if I had to buy Windows OS and do a fresh install or if there's a workaround. Will have to watch some YouTube tutorials of how to do the cloning now. Ta

        •  

          @dka: Why not just reinstall the OS? You could even use the free upgrade to win10.

        • +2 votes

          @AussieDaddy: The windows licence should be tied to the machine. You should just be able to reinstall from media (or download from MS). You can also use the accessibility option to upgrade to windows 10.

        •  

          @macrocephalic: The machine came with Windows 10 installed, and I am still using Windows 7 on my older PC so I was not sure that you could just install the OS on another disk for free if you have the license sticker on the machine. Is that what you're saying? I haven't done any fresh OS work for ages so I am kinda out of the game.

          Thanks for the comment. FWIW for others ever reading this, the advice I'm getting is fresh install is less hassle than cloning

    G'Day Ya'll

    Getting a few PM's but we are out of stock the 9010SFF i5's. If we do get anymore come into stock or the HP equivalent we will post a deal.

    Only 9010 stock we have at the moment is the i7 version which is linked bellow.

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/201682567995

    Only 30 units left though.

    •  

      I see through your website you can have a variety of add-ons - e.g, 120g SSD, Dual monitor graphics card…is there a way to do this if I purchased a machine through ebay?

      •  

        There should be some upgrade options it the item description. When you click on them it will direct you to a new page to purchase.

  •  

    good price

  •  

    Good price! Stick a low profile 1050 in them and you have yourself a budget gaming machine.

    •  

      Can you fit a regular card in them? I have friend who is interested but a 1060 would really suit him a lot better

      •  

        Think the Power Supply is what limits choice, probably up to 1050Ti.

      •  

        AS long as it draws power off the mobo and small enough. Needs to keep under ~50w to be useable. There's a few Low Profile 1060's around but you pay a premium for them. Here's one from Scorptec for $300

        No experience on them at all though. I assume the older CPU will begin to bottleneck the GPU at that speed.

      •  

        1060 would overheat everything in that case.
        Also the power supply would melt.

        •  

          How much would a new power supply and case cost assuming you can take out the motherboard and put it in a new enclosure.

        • +1 vote

          @AlienC:

          Mid-towers start from as little as $35, with something OK for about $65 and something nice for $100.
          You can get a brand-name 450W PSU for about $50, a Silver rated 450W with 6-pin connector for decent GPU's from about $75, with more powerful modular designs which are gold-rated starting from low-$100's.

          I've done exactly this btw, took my mums old PC (3rg gen i5 with 8GB of RAM and a 2TB HDD) which was cramped in a tiny and poorly ventilated case with a weak no-name Chinese power supply and transplanted it into a NZXT S340 case with a FSP Raider II 650W Silver PSU. Throw in a GTX 1060 and an 250GB 850 EVO SSD along with some RGB lighting and silent fans and all of the sudden you have an entry level gaming rig on the cheap.

          Hope that helps. :)

        •  

          @Viper8: hey this sounds really perfect.

          I am thinking of basically doing something exactly similar to this minus maybe some rgb lighting and fans haha lol but we shall see.

          Power supply I don't really want to skimp on so will probably get gold rating minimum.

          As for case and case fans I don't need the best but if you can show me or direct me to your favourite reliable cheap shop or area maybe I can bulk buy all the parts from one place.

        •  

          @AlienC:
          Need those fans to keep your PC cool and quiet if you're going to be gaming. Running large chassis fans on low/voltage reduces overall system temps and noise (reduces noise by taking the strain off of your small high-rpm GPU and CPU fans).

          The PSU rating is just for energy efficiency, its not necessarily related to the current and voltage quality (a Bronze may have better control than a Gold). But given that your MOBO and GPU have their own voltage control really anything that is branded and has any energy rating whatsoever is sufficient provided you're not trying to break over-clock records, despite what PC Master Race people will tell you.

          PLE has the best customer service and showrooms and are good with warranties not to mention an excellent website (only have stores in WA and Vic). However sometimes they're prices are pretty high, so I'll go to MSY (complete opposite of PLE lol).

          Good luck!

    Does the 990SFF have hdmi?

  • +4 votes

    For those wanting to install a graphics card in it, just be mindful that you'd typically need a power supply (PSU) of more than 300w - the PSU in these machines are only 200w (Optiplex 790 USFF / 990SFF) and 240w (Dell Optiplex 9010).

    Under heavy load, it might just turn off.

    •  

      Thanks meetspin.
      How hard to swap out the power?
      Looking at the 9010 i7

      Have 8GB ram and 128GB SSD will already be cracking open to install. Just need budget GPU to run adobe. Any recommendations?

    •  

      Depends on what kind of a graphics card you want to put in it and what you plan to do. I installed an NV GT710 low profile card in a HP SFF machine with a 240W PSU (Core i5 2nd Gen + 120GB SSD). Using at as an HTPC hooked up to a TV @4k, also running a Plex media server. Haven’t had any issues so far. Although, I haven't gamed on it, so the GPU hasn't been pushed to its limits…

    •  

      So does that mean the power consumption is really low? That's actually a plus for me funnily enough

  •  

    Thanks Scrimshaw, got the i5 2400 system for the gf.

    For those who don’t know, you can still upgrade these machines legally to Windows 10 Pro using this workaround. But you have to hurry up as Microsoft is going to close that door soon.

  •  

    It would have been good if there were more with usb 3, i'm after something really compact like the USFF or a nuc but must have usb 3.

    • +1 vote

      any of them will do. These machines are only slightly less powerful than most of today's mainstream quad core desktops.

      They may need more RAM plus an SSD upgrade, if you want to use these as 'everyday work machine'. I would recommend something cheap like Crucial MX300.

      If you scroll down the page (on the desktop) you can see upgrade options. These can be added to your cart and the vouchers also apply to them.

  •  

    If I don't want to put a $180 graphics card in my $150 pc can I get away with a GT710 or similar?

    •  

      These need low profile, and single slot cards. The best you can get here is basically the Nvidia GT1030, which will play most games at 1080p just fine, but will need some of the settings toned down. The 710 is ok, but not sure what value it has over the integrated video, as both will handle video playback just fine, and both will not be very good at gaming.

  •  

    These are also great as home theater pcs. They are small, quiet, and if you really need to you can squeeze in a GT1030 for some acceptable 1080p gaming.

  •  

    Please let me know if you still have any i7.
    Thanks

  •  

    The sad thing is I have a day 1 3570k in My main system that I use for gaming. Obviously it's overclocked and whatnot, but it has $700 of water cooling gear in it..

    Funnily enough it's probably worth more then the entire system now 😂

    Actually, these full size ATX workstations are not bad either for machines around $200 and $250.

    The W3680 is almost a poor man's 6800k / 5820k at identical base and boost clock. The older architecture means that it will be around 20%-30 slower but should still be a formidable system if you put a decent graphics card in it. Great for content creation and multithreaded performance on a budget.
    Price $239.20

    PS: if I am correct, some of these rig comes with motherboard with dual if not three full length PCIE slots(not sure if they are all configured as 16x though) and may be Crossfire capable for multi GPU set ups.

    PS2: the Quadro 2000 in these rigs are equivalent to GeForce GTS 450, don't count on them if you have gaming in your mind.

    Dell Optiplex 790 USFF
    Would plex work on this?

    Also I have a 500gb 3.5" HD laying around. Is there enough space in a USFF/SFF PC to accommodate another HDD and SSD?

  •  

    If this outfit advertises another 'HP Elite 8300' and 'Dell Optiplex 9020SFF', should i prefer one over the other?

    The specs are comparative.
    I just remember years ago trying to fix someone's branded desktop and the company had lobotomised the BIOS which threw me.

    Also power supply wise - reliability/efficiency and overall good design is what i'm into.

    Not a gamer … i think they call it 'productivity', though sometimes that's a challenge…

    •  

      HP uses a proprietary psu design (not ATX) while Dell usually uses PSUs with ATX connector. I would prefer Dell (as long as it's not usff) to HP for this reason.

    Can these models fit in low profile GPUs relatively easy? and if anyone has any links to Graphics cards they've managed to fit into their systems!

      This one works great!

    •  

      We have not had any reported issues fitting 1050ti 4Gb Cards into the machines. We were doing so many as upgrades we now do a preconfigured machine with them.

      •  

        Which one would be the fastest with a 1050ti 4gb card pre built or pre configured in?

        I am looking for one that can squeeze out the most gaming performance at 1080p so basically anything above a 1050.

        Will probably try fit in a 256gb or 512gb Samsung EVO SSD and 2 TB of hard drive storage.

      •  

        I can report one. Some of the Dell 9020 SFF have the PCIE 16 slot next to the PSU, not the CPU (some of the same model has it the other way around). If you have that model, then you cannot fit any of the GTX 1050s (unfortunately mine is one of those).

  •  

    Can someone explain something for me?

    There doesn't seem to be that much between the performance of the i7-3770 ("3rd generation") that comes with a couple of these machines, and the i7-7700 ("7th generation") that alone costs around the $370 mark.

    CPU benchmark 9308 cf 10808.
    TDP 77W cf 65W.

    At least they're the main specs that i tend to focus on.

    Am i missing something here?
    I can understand how a gamer might care, but what about us mere mortals?

    • +1 vote

      IMO you're quite right! In regards to regular use of a pc e.g word, browsing there is not much difference. However with higher end graphics cards and more demanding games, older intels can bottleneck frames and performance in games if you decided to somehow fit a better graphics card into the system :P. You'd also have slower performance in cpu intensive tasks such as video editing??

      •  

        Oh ok, thanks.
        Hadn't really thought much about the interaction between current higher-end graphics cards and an older CPU.
        Tossing between building a new PC from scratch (expensive) and picking up one of these ex-corporate boxes (inexpensive)…

  •  

    OMG!
    There's two of the i7-3770's left!
    And the 20% discount code is about to expire!

    OMG!

    •  

      did you order? mine arrived. a bonus - had 16GB RAM in it. but I need to get a SATA cable for the SSD… so not played with it yet

  •  

    For those wishing to cram a video card into the Optiplex 9010 - I've had luck getting the low form factor Gigabyte GTX1050Ti ($209 @ MSY) working with it; it ran the Cinebench R15 test without dying or letting any smoke out of the box (resulting in 70fps for OpenGL, CPU 676cb)

  •  

    Is this correct: You can upgrade free to win10 pro if it comes with 7 pro or 8 pro but not if it comes with 10 home (unless you use another license)?

  •  

    More of the Dell 9010 i7-3770's are available, but without the discount.

    Not sure if it's the desktop or the SFF as the title is confused…

  •  

    anyone know if the 8gb 9010 be upgraded to 16 gb ram? how much and what sort of ram does it take? cheers
    sorry wrong thread
