    I think that's quite a good price! If it fits your needs i would definitely go for it.

    Well I'm into breaking hashes and such, so I was thinking I could use the power to run programs from?
    He's been trying to get rid of it for quite a while, and he's asked me to make him an offer so I should be able to get it even cheaper!!

    I'm afraid i have no idea if it's good for that purpose. But price wise i think you have a pretty nice homeserver there.

    the big issue is that it has no hard drives and only scsi bays, 300gb are between $20 -$50 on ebay. You dont have to fill all the bays. Providing the rest of the hardware is fine , should be easy to get up and running.

    If he's open to an offer see if he will throw some drives into the deal

    That's really good for the price you're getting it for. I'd say it's worth it.

    I have worked on a few of that poweredge series. they are loud as hell, but I think you can tweak the fan speeds in the newer BIOS versions. Most of them had a couple on-board SATA ports in addition to the SCSI controller...so you could put a couple refurb SATA drives in RAID1 and have a sweet little system.
