Although this specific version is on the lower end of the spec sheet it's still a really powerful machine. Some additional memory, SSD, and a better video card (if needed) could make this thing great. I had my hands on a decked out Z440 a few weeks ago and it was pretty nice!

This isn't even a deal. This particular process is way outdated and sold around $70 on the market. The total price of 390 dollars cannot be justified. Sure, you may still do some decent rendering and 3d editing at consumer level but if you are looking for gaming, this simply will disappoint you. 3D work will definitely require you more than 8gb ram therefore this computer is at very awkward position; it does not satisfy any category of being a workstation nor gaming rig. Although it has 8 cores, each core is considerably weak and will not be on par with currently available i5/i7 cpus at all. Some will claim that there will be more games utilizing multiple cores in near futures, but by that time, this cpu will be even more outdated.

Thanks for your insights. Would this be a good desktop for photo editing in Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop or video editing in Premiere Pro with a RAM upgrade? NOT for gaming. I know those Adobe programs can actually utilize these 8 cores... would it be better than say... an old Intel 875K all else being equal?

At this age, these are probably off-lease "refurbs" that have been used for a few years.

This processor was over $1,500 MSRP in Q1 '12. 8 cores, 16 threads. 32nm lithography (which is pretty fcking old in tech terms), but turbos to 3.3GHz. Can't really go wrong at this price point. Unless it has serious thermal issues.

Yes it will do your job. Especially if you are using softwares like cinema4d and aftereffect including what you listed. I know workstation is very pricy. So if you are okay being little outdated yet looking for cost effective pc that can handle non-heavy art works, e.g 50+ layers work. You will be all good

The clock speed is what hurts the ES-2670. If it was clocked faster it would really be able to hold its ground in terms of compute performance. For the price it is a fantastic deal of a CPU that seems to perform close to a 6700K per futuremark's benchmark comparison. Pound for pound you get quite a bit for 390 if you're looking for a compy that can do photo editing well. Just would need to upgrade to an SSD drive to pull more performance.

I have used the dell versions at work and these would be great at-home desktops. You can do everything with these, even if they are a few years old. Great for Adobe applications too. I would much rather have one of these instead of a mid-range AMD build.
