Soooo.. i managed to pickup 5 dell poweredge servers for £60 2x 1950 2x 1850 1x6850

specs 

 

server 1 poweredge 1950

2x intel Xeon e5440 @ 2.83GHz 4 cores (8 cores total) 

34gb of ram(one sick of ram was not working in the photo)

Raid:sas (sata hybrid)

 

server 2 poweredge  1950

1x intel Xeon e5440 @ 2.83GHz 4 cores

server 3 poweredge  1850

2x intel Xeon (not known)@ ??GHz(? cores)

?gb of ram

Raid:scsi

 

server 4 poweredge  1850

2x intel Xeon e5440 @ 2.83GHz(4 cores)

4gb of ram

Raid:scsi

 

server 4 poweredge  6850

4x intel Xeon (not known)@ ??GHz(? cores)

?gb of ram

was an interesting find when i looked on top and i saw that they were ex EA Europe servers

the two 1950 servers and the 6850 have pcie in theory I could have a graphics card, one down side to the 6850 is that it has two  1470W psu's so you can imagine the power bill

If they have an NICs you can pull, it would definitely be a nice find. Not to be a debbie downer but you could out-gun all of that equipment combined with a single virtual computer on your main pc (assuming it was bought in the last 6-7 years). Sadly the person that sold it to you not only saved money but made money - normally have to pay to recycle old electronics like that. It is cool that they were EA servers.

 

But if you got even just a single gigabit intel 4 port NIC, you got a good find.

Agreed, those older Dell servers are pretty much junk. Whoever you bought them from saved the money from throwing them away.
