Actually you should be able to put a video card in there… the caveat is that some graphics cards require x86 instructions in thier vbios. Looks like it only has PCIe so an XVR-100 won’t work like in the Ultra 45. Not sure what cards may work acutally though they do mention the possibility in the manuals.
And no a T2 is not ideal for any interactive use as you’ll see it’s about as fast as a slug… I don’t even like using mine at the command like which is why I said I use my Ultra45 for integrative use. It is plenty fast if you throw a lot of integer threads at it, but not FPU threads so much as it still only has 1 FPU per core (shared between all threads on that core). T1 cpu in my t2000 only has one for the whole chip!
T4 is the first of the T series that I would seriously say it could be acceptable for desktop use like I said roughly 10x faster than a T2 which is especially obvious in singlethreading.
But yeah it should make a great CI builder I’d throw a cheap SATA SSD in there to help it along. (I should probalby donate a few bucks for that .
