Forget having your IT department work overtime to get high-end machines running in your office -- get machines that were specifically designed to run the OS you need (and give your IT dept a break).
And if you want a machine for home, the ValtaX99i is like having an IT department (ZaReason) working just for you, building you a machine that works out of the box so you can focus on your work (or play!).

"...Often when building a machine for brute horsepower, little thought is given to efficiency. Thankfully, that's not the case here. 80 Plus Gold certification means the power supply is 87% efficient at 20% load, 90% efficient at 50% load, and 87% efficient at 100% load. As it happens, when this system is running full bore with both the GPU and CPU maxed out, it's using almost exactly 425 watts. Whether it was a coincidence or not, it means the PSU was sized exactly right for maximum efficiency. Well played,ZaReason. "

This is a well crafted machine. It runs our linux distro flawlessly, and the military grade components tell me it'll be working well years from now. It's quiet and extremely light, and replaced a server class machine we had been using previously. It does just what it says - gives the IT department a break. There's no good reason not to buy it if you need a new desktop.
