    I want to pull the trigger as my current Acer is getting slower after 10 years.
    I have the Acer hooked up to a 50" TV and use that to stream you-tube and daily internet browsing.
    will this connect via HDMI and gives me high definition output onto a TV?
    Do I need a sound card or video card?

      It can give out FHD to your tv you dont need a video card.

      You can get an andiord box too cheaper to buy and cheaper to run(consume much less power)

      being an i5-2400 - these CPUs are already about 8 years old.

        Totally agree, 2nd gen i5 is a long way from the 4th gen refurbs seen recently.
        For a little over $200 a 4th gen machine can be purchased.
        I'd pass on this.

      No HDMI port, so you will probably need DisplayPort to HDMI converter or cable. VGA doesn't carry sound.

    I would avoid this as its a sandy bridge.

    Ivybridge and Haswells are going for similar or lower prices.

    Anyone got a link for a cheap 1050ti low profile card to go in this?

    If you know rubbish bin well, you may find lots of this kind of scrap metals (without SSD) inside with Windows license sticker (can be freely upgrade to Windows 10 Pro)….

    how many years old are these machines?

      the i5-2400 is about 8 years old.. they machines may not be that old.. but the tech is not new. That said, my desktop is an i5-2400 with 16GB RAM, SSD HDD and GTX 1060 6GB video card.. runs 1080p games quite nicely.

    Is it capable of playing 4K in a 65 inch TV?

    • +2 votes

      On its own? No chance. You need a graphics card to go with it.

      TV size doesn’t matter either

      Edit: thought you meant gaming. Ignore me ;)

      From what I gather, no.

      The processor needs to be a 4th Generation or higher for the iGPU to support local 4K playback.

      But, you can purchase and install a GTX 1030 Low Profile GPU, and it'll play local 4K media just fine. A GTX 1050 Low Profile would be significantly more helpful when encoding or decoding 4K content.

    Very old and no USB3. Consider paying slightly more for a 9010 or 9020.

    This is where the refurb shops buy these machines in Adelaide:
    https://www.mgs.net.au/auction/preliminarylisting.html?a=834...

    Your state will almost certainly have a similar disposal auction house for government fleet machines, which is what these will mostly be.

    Buy an i5 4th gen. They routinely sell for around the $200 mark at auction.

    You take a bit of a risk, given there's no warranty, but remember that if you're buying one of fleet, the chances are very high that just last week that machine was on a desk in an office working fine. Also remember that government and other fleet purchasers generally don't hold onto broken machines to sell with the rest of the fleet, they get them fixed under warranty.

    Almost worth a neg vote given eBay offerings.

    Shiny new 240G SSD won't save this.

    Issues are:
    * Processor came out Q4 2010 - that's an old processor.
    * No USB 3.0 - have fun transferring files.
    * Dell 990 - old machine, which means old power supply, which means bigger lottery than usual.

    Note can get HDMI easily via $10 DP-HDMI adaptor.

    People are throwing these out for hard rubbish collection - get a 9010/9020 with 4th gen processor for a few dollar more.

    The Phantom
    Still awesome
