Used server desktop

Hi, 

 

I've got an Xeon E5506 (FCLGA1366) + ton of DDR3 dims laying around and I'd like to make use of it. I'm looking for a nice used small server desktop that I could put it in. Doesn't have to be a server desktop as long as it'll support the cpu and has at least 4 ram slots available (6+ preferred).

 

Does anyone know a specific model that will fit with my €200- budget? There's so much to choose from, but I don't really know where to start. I'm currently looking at a Dell Precision T5500, but it's a bit too much for my budget. Anyone got any ideas? 

CPU: AMD 3800X GPU: GTX 1080 Ti RAM: (16GB) 2x Corsair 8gb DDR4 3200Mhz Drives: SanDisk 240GB SSD, Samsung 500GB SSD, WD 1TB HDD

Motherboard: MSI X470 Gaming pro plus PSU: Gigabyte 650 watt Monitor(s): 27 inch AOC 1440p

I got one of these that i use for a workstation https://www.ebay.com/itm/SuperMicro-X8DTL-IF-Dual-LGA1366-Socket-DDR3-Compatible-with-55-CPU/153027052841?epid=77578649&hash=item23a11f8529:g:iigAAOSw8b1aLpS0

It works very very good. However this is a dual socket motherboard :D

1366 Xeons are cheap, you can grab two X5650 hexacores for like 30 USD on Ebay.

If you want a standard ATX board, look for a normal X58 board.

 

Those can be pricey, but over here a working one will usually be between 100-200 USD. That is, unless you're looking for one of the more high end, expensive boards like the EVGA X58 SR-2 which will cost you at least $500 for even a dead one.
