    Can't believe I did it!


    Recently I bought refurbished Dell Precision T5600 Workstation from eBay. I have been upgrading it and I love this system! I saw another one on eBay for $200.00 and pulled the trigger on it! I like the first one so much that I wanted another as a backup system just in case I screw something up on it, lol.

    It had free shipping! I still can't get over these systems selling for such a modest price! My factory has had me working overtime so much that the cost of having another one does not hurt my budget right now so I figured why not go for it? With current prices I could not possibly build anything this nice for that low a cost.

    These things are really built solid! I never could have imagined owning systems with Xeon processors in them! The first one I bought came from the same seller and it was in immaculate condition on arrival. Everything was cleaned and had fresh thermal paste applied. They aren't all scuffed up either!

    I have enough spare part to upgrade the second system and am really excited for it to arrive!

    Nice machine!

    Did it came with NVIDIA Quadro or did you replaced it with GTX?
    Just curious. No matter the GPU as long as it works well.

    Sounds as if you did really well for yourself, exploder. Congratulations.

    Enjoy your new project.

    Both systems came with AMD FirePro graphics. The first system now has a 1050 Ti in it and I have a new MSI Aero 1030 to put in the second system. The FirePro graphics really are not that bad with the latest drivers though. If graphics card prices ever come down I can always find something better later I guess.

    Edit: Thanks WXC!
