As some of you may know, I get to play with a few of Dell’s computers. One of them is Dell Precision T3400 – Available in Core 2 Duo – Core 2 Quad – Core 2 Extreme Processors, and it is definitely my favorite model. So I wanted to take some pictures and write up a little review for this system. First off, my review may be a little biased, and I’m not going to compare it directly to another brand’s system. But, I hope it is still informational and helpful to someone.
The model I am working with today is Refurbished, purchased from Dell Outlet, and comes with a 3yr on-site warranty. However, I have replaced MANY of the parts, and while Dell certainly will not warrant the parts I added, doing so does NOT void the warranty of the rest of the system, as some may have previously thought.
The final specifications of this system…
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor (replaced E4400)
A-Data 8GB DDR2 800mhz (non-ECC) (replaced 1GB ECC 667mhz Samsung)
eVGA 512MB Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX (replaced 256MB Quadro NVS)
