Still using one of these, bought it at a time when I needed something cheap and efficient for some of graphics and video editing works and this piece here did left in in awe. With a dual 2.8GHz processors, 4GB ram, Win XP. Lots of fans inside about five of them but still manages to be quiet when working, though fans never stop completely, even when on standby. Used for CAD work, but also handles my video processing fine, multitasks in background with no impact. Performance seems indistinguishable from a latest gen. I bought quite a lot of laptops recently, except for converting DVD to AVI, this piece is as fast as possible, perhaps because 64bit machine? Remarkable that this old machine is still working fine and holding down against much newer kit. Awesome!
This machine supports high-end Intel Xeon processors designed for the toughest analytical tasks. It can also support up to eight monitors at a time. Not only that, but it has one of the smallest mini-tower form factors of any workstation. The HP Workstation xw6000 will help you do business with even more efficiency fluidly output.
Considering how cheap this machine is, I will recommend It any day any time for anyone that’s running a low budget on systems but still needs some certain jobs done with top class efficiency.
I use this PC as a general, everyday computer, and also to play some game. unfortunately, it has an AGP x8 slot for its graphics, so the best graphics card you can buy is an ATI HD4670.
but the computer itself is really good. its fast, very reliable, and easily upgradable. it can take a maximum of 8GB of RAM, and all of the XEON processors, but if you are looking to have a top spec pc, i'd recommend getting something else.
if you are on a tight budget, this pc is really good. as it is being thrown out by a lot of companies, they are going dirt cheap, some for around 100 pounds. it has 4 usb 2.0 sockets, space to upgrade the disc drive to a re-writeable one, and is great for multitasking, as it uses intel's hyper-threaded technology.
so if you are on a very tight budget, and are just looking for a pc for your everyday needs, then this PC is perfect for you.
