Intel Xeon E3-1225V3 Haswell 3.2 GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1150 95W BX80646E31225V3 Server Processor

Pros: Same specs as Haswell i7, but also supports ECC memory and costs almost $100 less. An old version of CPU-Z even identified it as an i7!

Cons: None that I can see. Even the much maligned stock fan keeps it around 30C at idle.

Other Thoughts: Got a combo deal with the excellent Supermicro X10SAE for $60 off. Supports DVI, VGA, HDMI, and DP all onboard!

HP Compaq Desktop PC 6200 Pro (D3H98UT#ABA) Intel Core i3 2120 (3.30 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD NVIDIA NVS 295 Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

Pros: Core i3, compact, good specs overall. Excellent heatsink and cooling system. PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports (these are getting hard to find). Windows 7 instead of the much maligned Windows 8. Rare 3 year warranty.

Cons: Sandy Bridge not Ivy Bridge means more power usage, but performance is about the same. Only USB 2.0, not USB 3.0. Although it has a dedicated graphics card, don’t expect to game on it. With a paltry 8 shaders and 64-bit memory, the integrated Intel HD 2000 is actually more powerful.

Other Thoughts: Unless you need dual displayport, ditch the nvidia graphics card. Then pop the black plastic cap from the VGA port and use the built-in Intel HD 2000 graphics adapter. You will have to install the drivers from Intel’s website.

Zalman MZ240ED Black 24

Pros: Big bright picture
Nice looking case
Decent stand
Dual inputs (DVI & VGA) with button to switch between them

Cons: Worst ghosting I've ever seen on any monitor! It's apparent even when scrolling a webpage. Forget about gaming, Doom 3 was ugly and unplayable. No way this is a 5ms panel, my Dell S2440L with a 6ms A-MVA panel is smooth as butter compared to this (but shouldn't be).

Other Thoughts: OK for office use I guess. Most non-tech people just want a large screen and don't care about things like response time. Still, I was surprised that a TFT panel with this kind of delay is still manufactured in 2012!
