Decent server deals [Link]

Just thought I'd share a site I came across while browsing reddit. Fairly comparable to Ebay prices if not cheaper (depending on the day), definitely cheaper than servermonkey. Have seen a couple people on reddit (/r/homelab) mention buying from them - I will likely too.

$655 Edit

 

Apples to apples, $413 vs $655. Price difference really takes off when you add disks (3TB $60ea vs $90ea)- but those prices change so often I don't fault ServerMonkey (much).

2x x5670s,

128gb (8x 16GB),

no disks,

2 PSU,

Enterprise iDRAC/IPMI

YUSSSSssssss, hope the shipping rates are good though.

60lbs across the blue, may end up costing as much as the server >_<. Really hope they're reasonable.

A lot of the ebay listing shipping isn't bad, some are awful. It's still cheaper than buying rackmount chassis new and used ones cost the same as many full systems so I may as well buy those. I used to buy parts but the chassis have been a major problem for me.

Oh that's interesting to hear, guess it really varies by country not distance. Had a friend mail < 5lbs of paperwork to SE asia for $40 lol.

Aint that the truth. Even a "cheap" case like the Norco RPC-4224 you wont get landed in NZ for much less than around $1000 NZ. Let alone some of the heavier Supermicro chassis/barebones ?
