    I have a HP PC with i7 Sandy Bridge. I saw at a swap meet an i3 PC with the
    same mainboard going cheap, so grabbed it for spares.
    When I opened it up, I found a cheap-arse power supply therein: only has
    a 20-pin connector, although the mainboard uses 24 pins like most.
    Also it only has IDE molex power for disks, so has SATA adaptors plugged onto
    end. I presume HP had a warehouse of old components they are trying to use up.

    My 3yo HP has an i5 with SATA and SATA connectors from the PS. Also eSATA. I
    did upgrade the
    RAM to 16GB from 4GB. I have no complaints.

    The extras are just used for higher power demanding
    cards like high performance video cards.
    That is the way the early SATA drives were done.
    You're wrong.

    I see Ebay sells a lot of "refurbished" computers
