Steps:
1. Add to cart [There is a $311 instant discount on this system (Limited time)]
2. Apply $280 off coupon number "349T130" on it (Expires 09/25/2016)
3. Checkout

PS: I strongly recommend to go with 1230 V5 processor for another $33.46 as it has HT option.

This is the best price I have seen for T130.

E3-1225V5 is the only processor with the skylake iGPU. The others include a basic maxtor GPU, which is good for servers, but if you plan to connect it to a TV/monitor and do basic media/gaming, you should get the skylake gpu, or plan to get a discrete one. However, with discrete GPUs, the fan's RPM will go really high, and it'll be loud. There's a workaround for that mentioned later in the thread (https://slickdeals.net/?adobeRef=96d54254874c11e6904066642bea1e6b0000&lno=1&trd=http+en+community+de+wbr+ll+com+&pv=&au=&sdtid=9121363&sdfpid=223515&sdpid=89854527&sdfid=9&mon=1&ref=1&u2=http%3A%2F%2Fen.community.dell.com%2Fsupport-forums%2Fservers%2Ff%2F956%2Ft%2F19682822). If you don't want to deal with all this, get the skylake igpu model. The GPU workaround only reduced the maximum fan speed (still very very loud), still not an acceptable volume with adding a GeForce 750 Ti.

^ Skylake iGPU won't matter after all, since apparently Dell hasn't connected it on the motherboard to drive a display. So no big reason to get the E3-1225V5 any more. You might still be able to do some GPGPU stuff on it, but that's a minor point which most people won't have use for.

This is a lower end server. As such, it has rudimentary video, does not include much for storage, ram and there is absolutely no sound.

Most people wouldn't even try to convert this into a PC. You are better off with an actual home computer.

I was surprised to learn that the 1225 is from the Sandy Bridge era! What on earth is that still being sold for? It's even listed as EOL:

The 1230 isn't a superset of it though. Intel and their feature-matrix games.

This is the E3-1225 V5 (Skylake).

Right, of course. Seeing how the 1230 doesn't include integrated video though, what does that mean for a system configured with the 1230? I see no mention of a separate card, and it's hard to believe that even a server would ship with no video.
