5.0 out of 5 stars ALL NEW COMING PC GAMERS READ THIS!!!!!
First off, if you are not planning on playing PC games with this then still get it, but do it from EZBuyCafe. They are a superior seller. The only thing I would recommend that you get, apart from the obvious monitor, is this service pack 3 upgrade on Ebay (search - windows xp service packs 2 SP3. Awesome CD update XP ). The reason you want to get this is because you...

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL NEW COMING PC GAMERS READ THIS!!!!!, December 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dell Optiplex 755 Tower Computer, Featuring Intel Insanely Fast and Powerful 2.13GHz Core2 Duo Processor (1066MHz Front Side Bus), 3GB DDR2 Interlaced High Performance Memory, Large 160GB SATA Hard Drive, Crystal Clear VGA Video with Ultra Fast Response Time, DVD/CDRW, Intregrated Lan/Audio, Onboard Video, Wireless Capable (Adaptor Sold Separately), Windows XP Professional, Windows 7 Capable (Personal Computers)
First off, if you are not planning on playing PC games with this then still get it, but do it from EZBuyCafe. They are a superior seller. The only thing I would recommend that you get, apart from the obvious monitor, is this service pack 3 upgrade on Ebay (search - windows xp service packs 2 SP3. Awesome CD update XP ). The reason you want to get this is because you do get a factory reset CD for the Optiplex, but it restores it to SP2, when you would want SP3. SP3 is supported longer than SP2 so you get more recent updates that make the computer 10% - 15% faster, safer from the newer viruses and hacks, and able to support newer hardware. So that extra $10 is well worth your investment.

Now, with that said, this computer is quite possibly the best gaming PC for your dollar. However, it is not like that out of the box so I will give steps to make it much better while keeping it as cheap as possible. The only drive that I found that I needed to replace was the video card as the one they give you is really lacking. The best graphics card for your money, and one of the best that can be put in this older motherboard is on newegg just search Sapphire Radeon 7750 HD 1GB low profile ). The install of the graphics card is simple. Just make sure you actually use the installation CD they give you instead of trying to find the most updated one online. It is plenty to get this computer running great graphics without having to purchase additional power wattage. I think this computer has only a little over 300 which is low, but it still comes out as a great purchase. This computer is actually playing Fallout 3 and Skyrim which are huge games and it is playing them on HIGH quality with 0 load times and no noticeable shuttering or texture popping at all. If you bought what I told then it should cost under $350 and compare to PC desktops out that cost easily twice that. This is due to the fact that everything it comes with is very impressive.

It blows my mind that I spent less money on this computer and the Sapphire than I did on my 360 and it runs the same games easily 15xs better.

I will be releasing videos soon with me playing various games such as any Bethesda game, or Rockstar game to show how this is quite possibly the best PC built under $350.

And with that use the steam store to download the games and you will get incredible savings on just about all games out if you do it before January 5th

This review is from: Dell Optiplex 755 Tower Computer, Featuring Intel Insanely Fast and Powerful 2.13GHz Core2 Duo Processor (1066MHz Front Side Bus), 3GB DDR2 Interlaced High Performance Memory, Large 160GB SATA Hard Drive, Crystal Clear VGA Video with Ultra Fast Response Time, DVD/CDRW, Intregrated Lan/Audio, Onboard Video, Wireless Capable (Adaptor Sold Separately), Windows XP Professional, Windows 7 Capable (Personal Computers)
What a great seller!
Great selection, described so concisely that I could quickly select the best item for our needs. After ordering, I was notified that we needed the product sooner, so a quick email and followup phone call was all that was needed to change delivery date.
Super positive, kind and helpful on the phone...and the item arrived a day BEFORE I expected it!
Painless and timely...just what I needed!
I will definitely look for this seller when we need to shop again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice result for the money but I have three small suggestions, May 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dell Optiplex 755 Tower Computer, Featuring Intel Insanely Fast and Powerful 2.13GHz Core2 Duo Processor (1066MHz Front Side Bus), 3GB DDR2 Interlaced High Performance Memory, Large 160GB SATA Hard Drive, Crystal Clear VGA Video with Ultra Fast Response Time, DVD/CDRW, Intregrated Lan/Audio, Onboard Video, Wireless Capable (Adaptor Sold Separately), Windows XP Professional, Windows 7 Capable (Personal Computers)
The machine came as promised and was actually a faster version of the Core2Duo than advertised. I am quite pleased, but I have two suggestions for the company.

1. Two of the USB ports on the quad bay in the back do not work. This is not a huge deal as the machine comes with 8 total ports but it would have been nice if they tested them.

2. The bios rev was out of spec quite a bit, it came with A10 and Dell is on A19. Updating that as a part of their standard testing would be a nice touch.

3. The 160G hard drive is sufficient but an upgrade to a 250 would have been appreciated, or perhaps for an extra 50.00 offer a 40G SSD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dell Optiplex 755, February 17, 2014

This review is from: Dell Optiplex 755 Tower Computer, Featuring Intel Insanely Fast and Powerful 2.13GHz Core2 Duo Processor (1066MHz Front Side Bus), 3GB DDR2 Interlaced High Performance Memory, Large 160GB SATA Hard Drive, Crystal Clear VGA Video with Ultra Fast Response Time, DVD/CDRW, Intregrated Lan/Audio, Onboard Video, Wireless Capable (Adaptor Sold Separately), Windows XP Professional, Windows 7 Capable (Personal Computers)
These computers are business desktops and will last much longer than consumers desktops.
All you have to do is upgrade them for your needs. The system I received runs fine with Windows XP.

I upgraded hardware with Zotac GT440 Video card (recommended 300 watt power supply, uses MAX 65 watts) and added 8 Gigs of ram. Display is Westinghouse TV/Monitor running 1920 x 1080 no issue with graphics card! Using ASUS USB BluRay R/W for DVD and Blu-Ray to watch movies no issues. Also using HP Bluetooth wireless keyboard and keningston usb mouse no issues. Network is wireless DSL using hard wire for 755.

Loaded Steam gaming software running “Pool Nation” looks beautiful in 3D no issues!

Will upgrade OS to Win7, no issues are expected at this time.

Also have run “Linux Tails” with removable USB 16 Gig plugin no issues!! Any Linux will work.

Last thought adding SSD drive would be perfect.

Very good value for powerful system with a few add ins.

Hope this review helps, these are very good computers.

The package arrived great and the tower works great. My husband is very happy with it and he says the graphics card is better than his old one. Thank you very much.

I have been building computers for years & I am picky. I usually dont buy but in this case i thought what the hell what do i have to loose.

This computer is as it says, its awesome too. But as a builder i did of course make it better. It comes with a 160 sata drive & 2 dvd burners. the second burner (bottom bracket) did quit working a couple of days ago but i replaced it so no biggie. the on board graphics will play some major games but not all of em. no biggie i updated it to a EVGA GeForce 8400 GS 1 GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 DVI/HDMI/VGA Graphics Card, 01G-P3-1302-LR now it runs all games and smoothly. the memory came with 3 gigs as listed i updated that to 22 gigs DDR2. Can you say FAST!! also bought a Sharkoon Skiller Gaming Keyboard & Jet Fighter Usb mouse. Along with a 27 in. flat screen, along with my system surround. & also installed 3 2.5 TB Sata Drives.

All in all seller you sold me an awesome computer, did a few minor upgrades made it better. I rate you a 10+++ Star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dell Optiplex 755 is awesome! 5 stars, January 13, 2013

The refurbished Dell Optiplex 755 (from Ezbuycafe) arrived in a very clean state with only minor blemishes to one side of the cabinet. It is a very fast, quiet machine and a big upgrade from my previous Pentium 3.0 hyperthreading CPU. The core2duo is able to run 2 programs at once with no stutter or slowdown. I am very impressed with the rapid boot speed. I am also impressed with how rapid it can open something like Excel or Word. (It opens Word as fast as you click it, same for Excel) For any of you that still uses Microsoft Front Page, this machine can open it in 1 second. I don't let tech devices impress me often but this computer IS impressive!

i used this computer for two days before it froze-up on me. i have given it to a service tech to see if he can rectify the problem. needless to say i am not happy and refuse to pay to ship it back.
