Hello, I want to buy Precision T3620 1220v6.
I want to install esxi 7.0 and vCenter 7 on this hardware, will it work? Does it also work at 6.7u3.
Can you help, thank you.
8 GB DDR4-2400
SATA 1x 1 TB
NVIDIA Quadro P400 2 GB DDR4
Psu 365 wat
The CPU supports ESXi 6.7 and 7.0, but the rest of the system does not because it's a consumer piece of hardware.
You will have to guess. No guarantees it'll work.
I will use this hardware for home lab, All I need is ESXi and maybe 2-4 VMs
Just one more thing. If you get this to work with ESXi, and you want to setup vCenter plus some VMs, then 8GB RAM will definitely be not enough. I'm running a small virtual vSphere lab at home, based on VMware Workstation on a PC with 32GB RAM, which IMO is the minimum RAM that you need.
thank you André.
I can add Ram in the future, can I install normal ddr4 (used on pc motherboards) on this motherboard?

From the information you provided it look like you can. However, in doubt contact Dell, or ask the memory vendor. Most vendors offer a selector from which you can select your system, which will then show supported memory. Also keep in mind that ECC, and non-ECC memory usually cannot be mixed, and that it may be necessary to add memory in pairs. So make sure that you gather the required information before you purchase additional RAM.
Hint: Once you have the system, use e.g. CPU-Z to find out the specs of what RAM came with the system.
