Default I bought a ThinkStation

To replace the old 2007 Quad core, I planned to buy a ThinkStation C30.
So I spend a lot of time on eBay searching a good deal.

But another model caught my attention.
I found a ThinkStation P700 for 950€ ($1100), shipment included.

It's way more expensive than a C30, but it's a good machine, and the price seemed to be very attractive, so...

It was shipped yesterday, it should arrive at home tomorrow.

Some details :
- Lenovo,
- P700,
- dual Xeon E5-2620 v3 @ 2.4 GHz,
- 32GB RAM : 16 on the purchase, but the vendor said he added 16 more as a gift,
- nVidia NVS 295,
- 1 x 240 GB SSD on the purchase, another one added as a gift,
- 490W PSU.

A good machine, but with two problems :
  1. a 490W PSU won't be enough for a CPU or GPU upgrade, I'll have to upgrade it first,
  2. nVidia...
