Dell T710 Server/Gaming PC?????

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a Dell T710 that has the desire to be a gaming PC. I know I know. Should not be done. But what can I say. It wants what it wants.  So GeForce 1070 graphics  2 Xeon 5560 processors and 96 gigs of memory.  What would Linus do???

The Xeons are super old...is this just for laughs? The T710 draws a whole lot of power too. What are you planning on playing on this?

Xeon X5670 for higher clocks would help, and some DDR3 1600 or 1866

keep the 1070, sell most of the ram (or all if it's slow) and both CPUs


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Nah not selling. Going to build it.  I got the server for $150.00. Might as well make it work

you have to quote us so we can see your responses

 

I don't think you should sell the whole server, just improve the CPU and ram speed to make it a better gaming PC.

I’m sure I could part it out and come out pretty good.  2 1000 watt power supplies 4 fans etc. but to build an I7 or I9 PC is expensive

Well unfornatuely those parts arent thatuse in normal pcs.

 

but if you wanna game on it you gotta cut the slot to fit a x16 gpu. Then get power for it somewhere. r710s aren't made for gpus like the newer r720 and the r7610

 

Even something like a ryzen r3 will smoke this in terms of gaming performane.

The PCIe for the gpu is weak for this board But does work.  I have added an External power supply to power the Graphics cards 8 pin terminal , Added and operating system , removed the raid adddd 2 TB drive for storage. The machine runs great does really well even with demanding games on all high quality settings.
