    GRaphics Card for HP Proliant MicroServer N36L

    Hi
    I wonder if anyone as turned a HP Proliant MicroServer N36L into a Home PC?
    I'm thinking of doing so and would appreciate any advice on:
    1) Low Profile Graphics Card
    2) Low Profile Sound Card

    Thanks

    An HD5450 or HD6450 DDR3. The HD5450 consumes slightly less power than an HD6450.

    I would use a USB soundcard.

    The GT520 consumes significantly more power than an HD5450:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/S...assive/25.html

    SPCR considers the HD5450 the most energy efficient graphics card they have tested:

    http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1023-page6.html

    With the 200W PSU in the HP Proliant MicroServer and the very limited cooling I would be looking at the HD5450. It will produce less heat than a GT520.

    TVM as ever.....
    At £120 (after cashback) for the box (I already have one to donate 1gb RAM and a 250gb HDD) it should be quite a cheap PC :-)

    Do you have any opinion on the benefits of running off a SSD from the main OS and boot? The price of 3.5" ones seems to be £100....

    An SSD consumes less power and produces less heat than a hard disk. It also much quicker in most cases and the computer tends to feel more responsive.

    You can always get 2.5" to 3.5" adaptors for the SSDs.

    Re: GRaphics Card for HP Proliant MicroServer N36L

    This 16gb looks fast and cheapish....Read 230MB/s Write 75MB/s @ £48

    But this one is slightly bigger 30gb and slightly slower :-) @ £60

    And this 60gb @ £67

    It's all a bit confusing :-)

    I saw on a different site someone using a 5450 with HDMI to get sound and graphics off the one card. But it depends if you have a HDMI input display.
