The E5-1650 gets an average CPU mark of 11775. Thats ridiculous for $350.

I purchased this in November for $365 from Newegg. I added a 970 graphics card, ssd, and 16gb of used RAM ($35) from Ebay. The motherboard has 8 Dimms so potentially you could have 128 gb or RAM, though you might want to add additional fans. So total with upgrades it ended up being around $600-$700. If you can find cheaper graphics cards it could be cheaper i guess.

It was easy to add/subtract hardware from the motherboard and configure it how i wanted. As far as performance, I run everything on the highest settings and I havent had a problem and with the SSD in there boot up and load times are minimal. I mostly play Dota and overwatch not much more than that but they run flawlessly on this machine. That is my 2 cents hope it helps. Sorry just tired ask more questions if you have them.

I bought one of these and got all the drivers and bios updates with no issues. They even had an app that did much of the updates for me.

Even had drivers for Windows 10 and bios dated last year. So newer drivers and bios.

This is an interesting deal. I've been saving up to buy a new gaming PC. I know this is a power hog, but any opinions on buying this and adding and RX 480 or a GTX 1060? Probably a nice SSD also. Apparently the PSU you can handle that with no problem. Any issues with using this as a regular desktop/gaming system?

I keep going back and forth on buying this as a basic gaming rig to replace my aging 1st gen i7.

It's not super power efficient, and it requires ECC memory. Those I guess are the biggest cons.

Looked at the spec sheet:
3 external 5.25-inch bays, 3 internal 3.5-inch HDD bays (4 total when using 5.25-inch bay converters);

Good potential here to be a VM server with some storage

Registered ECC is actually cheaper on eBay than 'regular' ram. Just not as fast.

This one takes unbuffered ECC, so more expensive

Would this be a good plex server or am I better off with a Xeon 1225 or 1226?

It will actually take ordinary server ECC (although the manual says it won't)
