REFINE BY DESKTOP TYPE
Customize your IT system with a barebone computer, which features a preassembled collection of basic components that a computer system needs to have, including a motherboard, power supply, and chassis. By integrating just the basics into one design, it's easy to build a custom system on top, choosing a processor, memory modules, video and sound cards and other devices that suit your unique needs.
While barebone computers include only the bare necessities of computing, they feature a variety of designs that fit easily into different office spaces, data racks and IT centers. Choose between tower barebones, booksize barebones, mini cube barebones and other computer options to find the design that's right for you. If you're interested in a traditional desktop setup, browse desktop computers.
Before selecting a barebone PC, consider whether your data center or network requires a rack-mountable design. Systems that include multiple servers, drives and other equipment may benefit from rack mounting, which helps conserve space while integrating multiple network machinery into one easy-to-navigate design. If you select a rack-mountable barebone computer, make sure its rack design (typically expressed with a U, e.g. 2U) is compatible with your rack system.
Ensure that your barebone computer will support all additional devices you plan to install to your system by examining the support it provides for processors, graphics and sound cards, adapters, drives and other computer components and upgrades. Do you need a motherboard with at least three PCI slots or memory bays, or a barebone computer that supports a 6-core processor? We've got you covered - just make sure your barebone computer is compatible. Explore other computer options by browsing desktop PCs and laptops.
