DellSB - PowerEdge 400SC Server with i875P Chipset, 2.0Ghz 400Mhz FSB, 128MB DDR, 40GB HD, 40x CD-ROM, and AGP Slot for $349 after Rebate with FREE Shipping!
The PowerEdge 400SC is an Intel i875P chipset based server with an 8x AGP
slot, which means you can pretty easily turn it into a gaming, multimedia, or
graphics workstation. Leon and I both own one of these and we love it. It is
compatible with 533Mhz and 800Mhz processors (hyperthreaded too), there`s built
in 2 channel S-ATA, there are 6 USB 2.0 ports, there`s built in 10/100/1000
ethernet, 4 PCI slots (with both 5.0v and 3.3v universal support), ADI 198x
audio, and loads of other features. The AGP and audio are not "officially"
supported by Dell, but they work. Mine is incredibly stable and fast. Here`s what you do:
- Go here for this Dell Small Business PowerEdge 400SC Server.
- All of the options for the lowest cost should already be selected. Make sure
you add the rebate and some other stuff listed here though:
- $100 Mail-In Rebate #42306! Redeem after system purchase at www.dell.com

- Standard Windows Keyboard,Gray
- Logitec System Mouse, Gray
- Choose what other things you want as upgrades (though they may increase the
price). Notice the P4 2.4GHz 800mhz processor is the same price as the P4 2.26GHz
533mhz one? I would
strongly suggest upgrading the processor:
- Intel P4 Processor at 2.4GHz, 512KB Cache, 800MHz FSB [add $99 or $3/month1]
- Scroll to the bottom and click on Continue
- Scroll to the bottom and click on Add to cart
- Shipping is free. Send in the $100 mail in rebate (expires 10/22/03).
- Update: Leon and I both have 400SC`s.
We`re both using them with AGP cards. Leon has an ATI Radeon 9800 128MB
AGP 8x card in his. I have an older ATI Radeon 9700 Pro 128MB 8x AGP card
with a Zalman heatsink in mine. Why do we do this? Because THERE IS
AN AGP SLOT. Hear me now and believe me later, we would not use these AGP
cards if this server did not have an AGP slot. Really. I am a firm
believer in NOT trying to cram an AGP card into a PCI slot. If you can
think of a better way for me to convince you, please let me know. Anyhow,
for now, here`s a picture of mine.
