Time to expand.
My usual way of getting machines was either through people i know or ebay which is a rare and quite expensive occasion. So i decided to look in the local ad's (something like craigslist ?) what i usually avoided doing for some reasons.
So i searched about and found this for cheap: (Sorry for low quality pics, took these with my crappy phone at work)
Anyway, its a Dell PowerEdge 2950 in a great condition. I wasn't such a big Dell fan, giving prior experience with their custom connectors and weird issues, but this thing is insane. You can literally take this apart with just your hands, everything is held in place by tabs (blue color for removable, orange for hot-swap). Its got an Intel Xeon quad core (socket 771, can't remember the model though), 4gb of pointless fully buffered memory
This thing is subject for another cpu and more ram. Also it sounds like a jet plane when it starts up, so fans will have to be replaced when this goes to the basement
Both PSU's are still there and working, 750w each and its said they are power hungry so im planning on running just one since anyway the power at the basement is crap anyway who needs 2 psu's ?
It also came with 2x73gb and 2x300gb 15k rpm SAS drives.
The next buy for the "datacenter" is a UPS and i spy some cheap APC ones as well (grin)
