PAYBACK

Howdy!

Taking advantage of the 10% off discount from eBay i've dropped the price again on the Popular 9020 Desktop stock.

Pretty much the same as this deal https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/368948 - However this current stock does not have SSD's :(

Dell Optiplex 9020 SFF
Core i5 4570 3.2GHz (4C)
8GB RAM
500GB HDD
They have 7/8 Home COA's but they are imaged with Windows 10.


Also

I've got about 40ish of the 9010 i7 stock which i've dropped the price on too.

Dell OptiPlex 9010 i7 SOLD OUT

The interesting thing with these is they have standard ATX boards and normal PSU connectors so you can fit them in a normal case if you wanted to build something up. Don't forget these are licensed as well.

Dell Optiplex 9010 Desktop Format
Core i7 3770 3.4GHz

    We bought the 9020 last time around. That offer had an SSD and we added a normal larger mechanical drive (2 minute job, tutorial on YT).

    Then bought a low profile 1050 video card. All worked a treat. Pretty decent mid-level gaming machine. My wife plays Planet Coaster on it, and it runs that at 1080.

    •  

      Did you have any issues with Windows licensing due to hardware upgrades i.e. your ssd + nvidia cards?

      •  

        No, I did same thing, no licensing issues.

        •  

          Awesome. Then this is worth buying considering the price and spec.

          I built one with similar spec few years ago 4th gen i5 , 8gb ram… still working pretty well.

        Windows 8/10 licensing is tied to your motherboard. You can basically change out almost everything else, but as long as you use the same motherboard you will be fine.

    •  

      Just for clarity, the 1050 card only fits in the PCI-e x4 2.0 slot and not the PCI-e x16 3.0 slot. Difference will be 5-20fps depending on the game.

      •  

        Ahh… Does the drive cage block the card, too long? Don't know of any short SFF GPU cards either - that are worth it anyway.

      •  

        Could you get one of those PCI-E extension ribbon cables and mount the card somewhere else?

        •  

          the perfect place would be where the PCI 2.0 slot is. Its a huge design flaw from Dell on how they put the longer PCI 3.0 slot just above the PSU supply.

          I really like the Dell, but the HP G1 has better airflow and can fit up 3xHDD while the Dell can only fit 1xSSD and 1xHDD

      Definitely needs an SSD. The HDD is the real bottleneck on these and it's a super cheap upgrade.

    •  

      Can you provide a link to the video, please?
      Ta!

        I followed this guide
        https://youtu.be/IFcb3SZwtHA

        We had to buy a 2.5 caddy (about $8 off Ebay). You do lose the use of the DVD drive though, the HDD sits in that section.

        • +1 vote

          Ah, that's what I was doing wrong. I couldn't see any space in there. I have a 2.5" caddy, can always get a little mech drive & stick it in there. I guess we could also get an external HDD or an External DVD drive. Works out to the same I suppose.
          Thanks for the link. :)

    •  

      I got the 9020 last time with the SSD as well, I finally got around to picking up a Gigabyte 1050 Low Profile (not the Ti) version, and it works very well… though I'm only playing Diablo 3, so I'm not really pushing the system… for comparison sake, the onboard video would do 1280x720 with medium settings in that game at a reasonable frame, whereas now I can do 1920x1080 at high settings with any real issues (smooth 60fps all the time pretty much)

      The PAYBACK code is not valid until 10:00 am on the 27/04. Try and use it then.

    What ram do these use? DDR3 1333?

  •  

    OP, the picture on the OptiPlex 9010 listing seems to be SFF, not Desktop, or am I miss something?

    •  

      I'm not to sure what you're seeing but it is the desktop version.

      Hopefully this pic bellow helps.

      Picture

      It goes

      USFF -> SFF -> Desktop -> Tower

      •  

        Ahhh, I see. I've a preconception that slim casing means SFF.

        • +1 vote

          just to make it confusing for you HP call them SFF even though they are desktop format >_<

  •  

    which would be the better of these 2 in the long term? cheers

  •  

    I got an i5 3570, would either one of these pcs be a welcome upgrade to my PC? Thoughts.

  •  

    OP please comment. I am looking for one. I want to connect it to my TV through HDMI for streaming through Kodi and some occasional adobe premier pro use. Which one would you recommend?

    •  

      The 9020 SFF (because of size), but you'll need a Display port to HDMI Cable/ Adapter or add a cheap Low Profile video card.

    •  

      I bought one of these and got a decently quality DisplayPort to HDMI cable on eBay for $4.65. Works fine.

      • +1 vote

        Needed one of those the other day and ended up paying $21 in JB. Amazing they are still ripping people off with cable pricing these days.

        •  

          Ebay takes time to arrive. So plan ahead.

        •  

          @lordra: True, but I thought some place would have a reasonably priced option. Tried two dollar store and they didn't have any. Kmart sells an adapter for $10 but it was out of stock. $21 was the cheapest I could find from a quick search of physical stores in a typical Westfield. I knew they were cheap online but was a last minute requirement.

        •  

          @nubzy: MSY have them for as low as $9 for 2m for local stock. They are well priced if you don't want to wait for postage or need something on the day

  •  

    Damn I would have bought if it had the SSD

  •  

    G"day rep
    Please iam after a I5 2500K cpu ,haver you got one by any chance?
    Thanks heaps
    :-)

  •  

    If you want to use two screens then a Lenovo M92P is better as they have two displayport ports, one hidden on motherboard on the inside. Very similar price.

  •  

    Considering trying one of these PCs out as it'll damn well be faster than my old Phenom II x4 925 (which my laptop processes outspeeds). Thanks for posting these OP, I was wondering if you know about the board configuration of the Desktop 9010, mostly just to know if a video card could be installed in the PCIe x16 3.0 unlike in the SFF model?

    bought one of these for my father in march with an SSD upgrade. It has been an excellent upgrade, convenient, and quickly shipped. i never got to email a thanks to you, so giving you a thank you now for a great system.
    Cheers fellas.

  •  

    Interested in buying the 9010 for my in laws. If I want to go in for the 240gb SSD and 16gb ram upgrades do i have to add three items to my cart and checkout?

  •  

    Quick question.. which is better out of the i5 and i7?
    Also can is there enough room in there for me to add another HDD?

    EDIT: Also if i upgrade to the SSD, do i lose the 500gb HDD?

      •  

        I followed that video when I was trying to install SSD and HDD together.

        Hard drives bigger than 2TB are physically bigger than the one on the video so it will NOT fit the SSD and the HDD inside the caddy together. You have to put the SSD under hard drive caddy

    •  

      i taped the SSD from the old PC onto the SSD from the new one. too cheap and unprepared for the caddie. it had the extra power cable to have it connected, and i had a spare sata cable to use. I also put 4gig of ram from the old PC (pretty much the same ram, not running dual channel because my father doesnt need it).

      see mcfly's youtube

  •  

    We bought one from the last deal to use it as Plex server and it works great. Easily 2 or 3 720p streams simultaneously.

    Rep: we need one for office. Just for a conference room. Any suggestions on lower spec models? Thanks in advance.

  •  

    Thanks for the post. Question to seller, do you have any good deals on still usable laptops, also do they even come with a small warranty to make sure there is no defects on arrival?

  •  

    FYI the i7 3770 is better and cheaper than the i5 4570

  •  

    Too bad low profile 1050ti 4gb cards are more expensive than before :(

    "They have 7 Home COA's but they are imaged with Windows 10."
    Is that legal?

    • +3 votes

      Yes, MS wants you on Win10 so they will let you activate with old keys.

      •  

        source? I wouldn't assume anything with MS. You can activate certain versions with volume license keys also - doesn't mean it's legal.

          This is very old news, Win 10 was a free upgrade for Win 7/8 users for a fixed period upon release. They ended up extending indefinitely and in the first major update added the ability to use 7/8 keys on a clean install, not just for upgrades.

          @ashanrath:
          Yes, The MS free upgrade to Windows 10, as far as I knew, lasted for a certain period. The free upgrade now, I thought, was only for customers who use "assistive technologies".
          So, yes I know it works. You can upgrade. But is it legal if you aren't an "assistive technologies" user?
          The link you provide was written in Feb 2016 whilst the upgrade was free for everyone.
