This site is about how to use "industrial strength" server hardware for running Linux. Since I'm on a budget, I like the cheap stuff you can find used. There's a lot of clueless people selling really expensive server hardware on Ebay for a song. Usually it's a bit "different" perhaps, say running some exotic CPU architecture or something. That's good. That means you can get it cheap because "lusers" can't run Windows on it. Better for you.
Here's a specific example. This is an Ebay auction for 4 (four!) rx4640's for $4000. Each one includes RX4640 Base Server, (4) A7159A 1.3GHz Itanium 2 CPU (note that these are DUAL core CPU's, that's *EIGHT* cores), (8) A6969AX 1GB Memory DIMMS, (1) A9897A 73GB Disk Drive, and Rail Kit, tested with 90 Day warranty. That's $1000 for a 8 core box with 8 GB's of RAM. Wow. (I don't know what the retail on these was, but I'm sure it was $20,000 and up...) Just the RAM in these (32 GB total) is worth $4000 used. You could part them out and make some money, but that's no fun.
These run Debian like a champ.
