I came here asking opinions on upgrading a Dell Optiplex 755 and the general consensus was it's a waste. So, after some diligent research on bang for buck, I came across the Dell Precision Tx500 line and how they are cheap for a lot of power. Then found a deal on a T3500 w/ X5670 and 12gb ram and 1tb HD for $230 shipped, snagged one. Then I bought an XFX Radeon RX480 from Best Buy. ended up not being compatible and had driver issues, so returned and bought a PNY GTX 1060 6GB. Dell had it in a compatibility list so I knew it was G2G. Also stuck a PNY CS1311 SSD in it... Total cost at this point is $540, and it does game VERY well at 1080P. My monitor is 1080P/ 60hz so that's all I can test. I bet it would run most games at 1440P though. Then I took the Optiplex and turned it into my plex server. Replacing a Latitude D610 which had those duties. Then, because the Precision uses basically server grade components, I figured a tape drive to backup all my data would be cool. I didn't need it but, after just getting back into the tech world I wanted it. So I grabbed a PCIE 1x SCSI controller and a Dell Power Vault 110T LTO 3 external drive, that I'm now trying to get set up But now, yea I can game on near ultra settings on most games I play at 1080P, and this is probably the fastest computer I've used ( I had been out of the loop since 2013ish ). I don't know exactly what all to do with it, now that I have it. I kinda did it, just because.. And this is the most I've spend on computer equipment, at least at once. My last computer was $550 with a GTS 250 and I built that one, using mostly mid range components. BTW anyone know if brand of LTO cartridges really matter? Fuji's are $11.25 on Amazon, but other brands hover around $15-$20.. The savings is an extra cartridge every few cartridges, so not a big deal but it would be nice to spend as little as possible Anyone else Overbuild/ Overbuy?
