In an HP XW4400? I don't have it yet, but I can get an awesome deal for one. I want to know if it has the dual back panel thing that I need for my non-lowprofile 9800GT, because that's my major concern.

Uhh, an e6600, which I plan to OC if I can. It should be an amazing step over my P4 Dell.

How much is it for, Its a workstation and OEM so I doubt that Mobo can do OC.

Yeah you're probably not going to be able to overclock, you may not be getting a good deal like you think you are, let us know how much so you don't walk into something you'll regret.

As of now, it's $250. I really just want to know if I can put my 9800GT in it. x_x

Your being ripped off IMO.
You can get an Athlon X3, 770 Mobo, 2GB DDR3, 500GB HD and a decent case+PSU for a little under $300 which crushes that HP while having warranty.

But if you want to do it, the 9800GT is going to fit and the PSU should do the job, just not very nicely.

Fun. I would have gone and built it myself, but I can't be bothered with the work of it right now. This is just easier for me, and I'm helping a friend pay for college this way, so...

Thats not too good of a deal, does your 9800GT have a low profile bracket?

Looks LP to me.. but I'm not sure.

Its ATX mid-tower, look at the 5.25 bays, juts a really small picture for a case that's bigger than you think.

Yeah its going to work just fine.

Though 1 point, If hes including the Quadro card with the $250, then thing get ALOT better as you can sell that for $100 on ebay. XD
