The Optiplex 745 is a powerhouse! I fitted a Sapphire 1GB fanless HD graphics card to mine and the results are great. The machine is very noisy on startup as the huge cooling fan kicks in, but afer two or three seconds you would be hard pressed to hear anything. Highly expandable with room for two very large SATA drives and more ram than you are going to need, this machine is the business. Cool running, largely due to the impressive front mounted cooling fan and great for all applications. Not a full on gaming computer as it is designed for business use but great for streaming music, video etc. Mine came in a full tower case but hey - who cares, it is the performance that I was after and it has not dissapointed. Mine came with Windows 7 Home Premium preinstalled and it is very stable. No issues with it at all. Top machine.

Are now one of the most popular computers in homes. This is surprising given the fact that you will struggle to find a shop selling them brand new. Dell believe in selling online via their own website. The used market is now flooded with dell. Mostly because of the reliability and the after sales service, given by Dell. They will support you no matter where you bought the Dell, they have info on their database of every Dell, therefore you just give them the service tag number and they will support you.... An amazing computer company, unparalleled by others!
