I am thinking of buying 2 used Dell OptiPlex GX150 mini desktop PC, in order to experiment a little bit- hoping to build a cluster maybe. There are some things i would like to know:
-How good Linux support do they have? Googling around, i saw many people experimenting on them and also the hardware looks it has pretty good support, but if anyone has previous experience it would be useful.
-Is their 150W PSU enough? The power will only be used by a HD, not any optical drives etc.
-Do you think there will be a heating problem? I intend to use them later maybe as servers and connect them to the internet and my router for our wireless city network; they will have to work a little hard maybe.
If anyone has nothing better to do:
Post any thoughts.
Thanks a lot.
