FYI, this doesn't appear to have an operating system installed.

Not a bad deal, though I always caution people about upgrading OEM machines with the intention of upgrading them.

While this machine would probably cost about $80-100 more to replicate with decent DIY components, the cost to build an upgraded version of this decreases that margin.

For instance, the 500GB HDD, you could get one for about $25 to $30 for your DIY build, but if you were looking to upgrade to say a 2TB, you can get that instead of the 500GB for around $30 more... With the OEM machine here, you are already paying for the 500GB drive no matter what, and unless you have a purpose for it, it is a loss if you upgrade it to a 2TB... So the DIY build just goes up $30 or so, but the OEM machine goes up $60...

Each component you upgrade keeps diminishing the margin that way, the more you upgrade, the better off you would have been to build. (Not to mention that just about any aftermarket motherboard is going to be better than just about any OEM motherboard.)

Some things like the RAM can be sold to make some of the loss back when upgrading an OEM machine, but a lot can't be sold for any amount that would be worth it. That tiny HDD, the PSU, heat sinks, fans, optical drives, (if you wish to add a graphics card, expect to have to upgrade the PSU at least)... the i3 processor holds its value pretty well on ebay, but that is about the only OEM component (aside from RAM) that is worth being sold during an upgrade.

Long story short: if you plan on just slapping an OS on this PC and using it the way it is... it's a good deal. If you plan on upgrading more than 1 or 2 components, or if you plan on adding a graphics card, you might want to build instead.

Hrm, with 8GB of RAM it's a great deal. It says 8GB is the maximum in one place but that's probably wrong. I do wonder how many disc drives it comes with, since the pictures show zero, one, and two!

going by the specs and pictures on the listing (not in the general model description) it looks like a 500GB HDD and no optical drive.

It probably would, but it's time to move past 2008.

Currently on extended support - end of support is 2020.

If you need legacy support, you'd be better off running a current server OS and virtualize the 08 box.
