$439+55 shipping.

E5-2670 3.3 Ghz 8 Core 16 thread Monster pass mark score of 12500.

16 GB DDR3
500 GB HDD
DVD-RW
Nvidia Quadro N295 GPU
believe it's a redundant 350w PSU but unsure ad to wattage. it is an older MOBO 2011 not V3 but still a great deal for amazing power.

AND Windows 7 Professional already installed

Lots of options available for reasonable $. 1TB for $10 more, 32GB for $30? maybe? you can get the Quadro N600 GPU for a couple bucks more but it's pass mark score of 600 means you'd be on par with old Intel on chip graphics. better off getting a 950ti or 250 with ddr5. good luck.

I would say at this price, buy something with E5-5xxx older models like V1 with dual processor (4*2) 8 core rig for much cheap. Still good find OP. TU

they where much cheaper but bus speeds lower, less pci lanes, and even with dual e5660 pass mark scores were in the 8000 range with X2 TDP.

Agreed and my suggested build will such on the power consumption, bus speeds and possibly upgradability too. but its dirt cheap as processor runs for $20 so a pair $40 and used motherboard for $100-$130 .. all other accessories $100 power $50.

Second thoughts, my build sucks balls as no warranty, no windows, no upgradability, and less benchmarks Big Grin LMAO

this system would be pretty much tapped on cpu upgrade there are only a handful of faster clocked 2011 v-0 chips and they are all $400+ for just silicon. I'm just excited man. I can't think of a cheaper way to get:

8 cores
16 threads
40 PCI Lanes
USB 3 (from photos of same spec system on ebay)
10 SATA III (up to)
windows 7 professional
16 GB ram DDR3

Notes: LGA 2011 and LGA 2011 v3 use completely different sockets. Same pin count, different layout.

Performance: There's been a lot of talk on builds with the old E5-2670s recently, and they generally perform quite well, though some games aren't great with them.

Proc cost: OP is way off. Standard Refurb price on E5-2670 is < $80

Good buy, if you don't already have a case, psu, or OS. Upgrade the HD and GPU.

CPU Upgrade capability is pretty washed, but there's nothing but room for improvement with that GPU.

I guess you can't OC the CPU, but it turbos to 3.3GHz which isn't shabby. And if you run software that can use all the threads, hell there are 16 of them!

The E5-2670 v1 goes for$65 all day on eBay [ebay.com].

or you can pick up a full dual E5-2670 system with 64gb RAM & 10Gbe for about the same price:

Not the best form factor.

You can get a nice 2011 v3 mobo with ecc for $170 AR on newegg.

You can take your pick of "E5 V3 ES" from ebay with 15k-20k cpu marks for $200-$300. And you can use ddr4.

Another route you might want to go is the way I went. I built my own using this processor. You can technically do 4 core/32gb vms and I was also able to do some vga passthrough gaming as well on a R9 390x with KVM.

My specs ended up being the following for the main components
Phanteks Enthoo Pro SSI EEB/ATX/E-ATX Case $90
2x e5-2670 with 2x hyper 212 evos $140 + $50 (Waited for a better price for the 2 CPU Coolers, but now the cpus went down in price. Make sure you get the SROKX since this does full virtualization)
128gb DDR3 (8gb PC3-10600R x 16) $200
ASRock EP2C602-4L/D16 SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 (4 NICs, ILOM and management NIC, supports 2 full size video cards $340
Power supply, video card, storage, and additional ports are all your own preferences. I spent more on other items that I cared about.

I was looking for a video editing machine on the cheap <$600. Was earlier looking at used Dell T7500 with dual Intel Xeon X5680. But got put off with compatibility issues with Adobe suite. How does this compare?

I know this is a broad question but any pointers will help me get back into the search... thanks

Anyone ever play games on one of these? That benchmark is beautiful but many newer games recommend 4ghz.
