Decent price, except the HDD is far too small for a modern PC. Plan to spend another $50-$70 on a 1 TB-2TB HDD, bringing the cost to $210.
You'll also need the technical knowledge to physically add your drive to the system, and clone the old drive onto your new one. It's not difficult - as long as the motherboard has two SATA ports to work with. Even an ultraslim should have those ports, but who knows...

I would look around on eBay first. You should be able to find a PC with a decently sized HDD for the same price, and avoid all the hassle.

  I would just leave it as-is and add an external usb hard drive for additional storage if needed.

No HDMI on this system. I can't find anything definite on if this system supports audio over displayport. If it does, it seems like this would make for a great HTPC.

Can I add a video card for 3 monitors? Or can it already do 3?

  No, you can't, and it can't.

The one thing worth considering before buying this is it's age which is between 4 and 5 years old. If this was a heavily used (many hours) leased return, it may only have a few years of useful life left. Motherboard caps, power supply and system fans are high failure items on older desktops.

Agreed. I just bought a HP 8300 Small Form Factor unit on eBay for $117 shipped, arrives tomorrow.

  • HP Compaq 8300 Elite SFF Desktop. Tested Working.
  • NO Operating System.
  • With Window 7 Pro COA sticker.
  • Intel i5-3470 3.20GHz   (Passmark 6631)
  • 8GB DDR3 12800U
  • 500 GB SATA Hard Drive.
  • Parallel Port for plugging in Printer.
  • Power Cord and VGA Cable

You can put low-profile PCI and PCIe cards and a second HDD in the SFF-sized unit.

on the original deal... 4gb is NOT enough RAM and this is almost definitely a SLOWWW 5400rpm hard drive. The CPU is plenty fast enough for any basic computing... but it will be hampered by the lack of RAM and slow drive.

You'd want to add at least another 4gb of RAM ($25 bucks?) and a 256gb SSD ($100) plus you'll need the know how to clone the windows drive onto the SSD... as these computers almost never come with an actual windows install disk/USB and serial number

More than enough RAM for any Linux system.  Nice find OP!

  Interestingly enough, yes you can, though to do so would probably kill any cost benefit of picking this up cheaply. HP documentation on doing this can be found here: www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03597044 

You would need to use an MXM (Mobile PCI Express)-based video card. Doesn't look like one is included here, so you'll have to do some hunting for one that will work with this.  You would also likely need to hunt down a larger (180W) power brick to replace the 135W that comes stock. Overall, expect to spend at least another $100 to make this happen.

  Having worked on hundreds of the SFF version of this, I wholeheartedly concur. The 4GB memory and stock mechanical drive will seem fine at first, but it will get bogged down pretty quickly as you start installing much of anything, especially if running Windows.  We've taken old 8300 SFF's deployed with these specs that were old, laggy beasts, popped in another 4GB and transferred the drive image from the mechanical drive to an SSD, and they run about as well as new office PC's under otherwise the exact same load.  Night and day difference.

It DOES support Audio Over DisplayPort.  Solution for setting it up can be found here: h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktops-Archive-Read-Only/HP-Elite-8300-Ultra-Slim-No-Audio-via-Display-Ports-Solution/td-p/4986680  (NOTE: You'll probably need to cut and paste this address, as FW seems to be adding junk to the end of the link that HP 's support site doesn't like.)

Do you know how many memory slots are there in this? Just 2 or 4?. I am thinking of a VirtualBox but then 4GB is way too low. I am looking at something like 16GB or 32GB. If there are 4 slots I can do that.
PC's have gone up in price for some reason.

isn't $150 about what win10 pro goes for?

i have had luck using the COA serial number from HP's on other machines, so someone could buy this for the COA and donate the hardware to charity for a $XXX tax write off

  would this work for HP dc 7900 with display port?

  Assuming you mean with the integrated one, my guess would be that this would not work on a dc7900. The integrated video on the 7900 is a GMA-series, and on the 8200 is an HD-series. Very different beasts with different drivers.  Sorry!

  The bad news is that it only has two SODIMM slots. The good news is that it will handle 8GB in each, so you can hit your 16GB mark with this.

Our 10-year-old (awesome!) Dell Zino HD machine just had the HDMI video die . It is the only device attached to our bizarre home theater system that consists of a TOSlink (optical) surround sound Logitech (fantastic sub-woofer, great sound!) and a 1080p Vivatec projector (via HDMI) mounted on the ceiling rafter, beaming at a 16-foot screen with special blackened curtains; we could stream, use chrome, win7, youtube, etc. A forced win10 update bricked the device but it came back (better!!) as a mint linux system and all the local videos and streaming stuff worked just as well on mint linux. It even played bluerays. Chrome worked fine on linux, and for a while we even get a bash shell (bonus!). But it was powered on and ran hot for 10 years (especially in the summer without a/c) so the video card cooked out some of the magic smoke and now we must give it an honorable send-off to environmentally responsible recycling and search for a replacement. We are soliciting suggestions for a replacement that will last 10 years (4K video out on HDMI-latest).  Which form factor and what should we get?  Thanks in advance.
