    That's actually not bad.

    What brand of RAM goes into the machines?

    It is good isn't it?

    RAM-wise you would be looking at Samsung, Hynix, Nanya etc. Straight from the chip makers, though occasionally it'll be Kngston with Hynix chips.

    I feel an attempt to get some new support desktops coming on...

    Do you know how it handles second graphics cards... I'm going to need at least 3 outputs, it would be handy if I could use the 2 on board and then 2 extra off a second card.

    We've had issues with some of our Stone machines not being able to use both cards at the same time so i'm a bit wary.

    Dell machines are ok at handling 3 outputs. If you have a graphics card with 2 outputs and use the onboard it can be a hassle to get it going, but its fine once it is. If you have a graphics card with 2 outputs, then you are sound.

    Random question... How tall is it? There is a shelf over our desks that it would need to fit underneath.

    I used to use one, they are pretty heavy, I would be more worried if the self can hold it.

    It's not going on the shelf, it needs to fit on the desk, underneath the shelf... I've got 470mm.

    These don't have an onboard graphics out unfortunately

    It's got a beefy psu so we could pop a second card in with no problems, however for just £30 you can have it with the NVS 440 card which has four discrete outputs

    Marvellous, we have just enough space!

    We have our own send graphics card that we will reuse.

    I'm giving the order in now, lets see how it goes!
