+7 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
Six USB 2.0 Ports

The Precision T1700 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months. This DELL PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Precision T1700.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This desktop computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many desktop computers that were launched in the last year.
8 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
The average max memory bandwidth supported processor of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700 is 33GB/s. At only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the DELL Precision T1700 has a quite slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other latest similar spec computers.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The Precision T1700 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 32 gigabytes) amongst computers of this age. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of PCs that came out in the last 12 months is 2GB and the biggest is 1.6TB.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many latest personal computers.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This PC supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most commonly supported Ethernet LAN data rate on computers that were launched around the same time as it.
+5 More reasons against
Only One DisplayPort
The Precision T1700 is a one DisplayPort personal computer.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
Most comparable spec personal computers that came out around the same time as the Precision T1700 have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the Precision T1700 which has one PCI Express x1 slot.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
With a memory clock speed of only 1,600 megahertz, the Precision T1700 has one of the slower memory clock speeds amongst desktop computers of this age. The memory clock speeds of computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz.
Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
The system bus data transfer rates of computers that have been available for the last year range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 7.1GT/s. The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the lower system bus data transfer rates (only 5 Gigatransfers per second) amongst desktop computers of this age.
6 Other reasons to consider the DELL Precision T1700
Released Twelve Months Ago
DELL released the Precision T1700 twelve months ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the Precision T1700 has a pretty average processor clock speed compared to most of the other latest medium processor core computers.
Alternative 3.3GHz processor clock speed computers currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper PCs such as the DELL Precision T1700 (£429.99), or the Fujitsu W530 (£580.80).
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the 550-270na (£679.95) (3.4GHz and cheaper), or the Z240 SFF (£802.59) (3.4GHz and cheaper) both from HP.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Precision T1700 has a relatively average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Precision T1700.
We compared all the other 1TB hard drive capacity desktop computers to this personal computer and we think cheaper PCs such as the Alienware Alpha (£725.30), and the DELL Precision T1700 (£585.89) is also worth considering.
If this PC hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the 550-170na (£619.98) (2TB and cheaper), or the 550-270na (£679.95) (2TB and cheaper) both from HP.
+4 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Precision T1700 has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers that have been around for around the same time as the Precision T1700.
Other 1TB total storage capacity PCs currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper personal computers such as the Alienware Alpha (£599.00), or the DELL Precision T1700 (£585.89).
If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the 550-170na (£619.98) (2TB and cheaper), or the 550-270na (£679.95) (2TB and cheaper) both from HP.
Average Internal Memory
The DELL Precision T1700 has a pretty average internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for the last year.
There are a number of other 8GB memory PCs currently available which you might want to consider including the DELL 7040 (£749.98) which is cheaper.
If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP 550-270na (£679.95) (12GB) which is also cheaper.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many personal computers that have been around for the last year. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
We compared this PC to all the other HDD personal computers and we think the Alienware Steam Machine (£509.99), and the HP 490 G3 (£647.96) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this DELL PC is too slow for you then you might want to consider the 800 G2 SFF (SSD), the 600 G2 (£799.63) (SSD), or the Z240 SFF (£904.97) (SSD) all from HP.
