    I got my shipment in from TigerDirect today and wanted to share. These are going to be the new computers for our department. I'm pretty fired up to start building! These are going to be pretty potent office machines.:roll::roll:

    Stats:

    AMD Phenom II 720 x3
    Biostar TA790GX 128MB
    2x2gb Corsair XMS2
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB
    TT TR2-430W
    Sammy DVD Burners
    Apex PC-389-C cases

    Less than 500 bucks per machine shipped. Not too shabby. Our current p4 Dells I believe I can hear crying.....:roll::roll:

    Hey, with those PSU's, you got computers AND a heating system, since (I believe) they're only about 60% efficient. -5 volts = designed for PIII!

    Actually Our comps are constantly running multiple apps that are pretty hungry. Plus the boss told me to future proof (within reason:p) so these were a good choice.

    The PSU choice is indeed one I wish I had back; didn't quite do enough homework on that one. I think I looked at a similar model and ordered the wrong one.:p Still, we keep it pretty cold in the office so the heat output should kill matters too much.

    We're recycling the XP Pro licenses.

    And mlee, we dream of dual cores. P4 single core 2.8s until I get these up and running. With CD drives. That's right, not even CD Burners. No DVD. :wtf::shadedshu
     
    mlee49 says thanks.
