Synopsis

Since there is no powerful generic machine at the space, I was tempted to score a old workstation with a lot of horsepower that we can use as generic machine. I am buying the machine before the end of June. Small edit: we got a slightly newer machine, socket 1366 rather than the planned 771 machine.

The system will have a Linux-Windows dual boot and is general purpose.

€75,-

Though i am getting the machine regardless, donations are always welcome! The cost for the workstation is 333 euro.

Additionally i am putting a extra 320GB HDD and a Nvidia GTX 550 TI from myself in the machine to beef it up.
