ML350p
Other

I'm looking to setup a VM farm at my house. I can get a ML350p Gen8 with

the E5-2609 processor, 32GB of RAM for $305.00.

My questions are:

1) I want to put the E5-2670 processors in it, however I did read that you

     have to be careful which ones you get. They should be ones that had

     been sold, or were in an HP server.

2) I want to use 1TB SATA drives, do these have to be HP drives ?

 

My other choice is to buy a ML350p Gen8 with E5-2660 for about $380

Has anyone tried this?

Any and all help is appreciated
