    Probably around 1K.

    Sounds about right, $1k might be a little optimistic though.

    Compare it to the lowest processor spec Dell rackmount you can get today with most of those features. Without the Hot Plug Hard Drive Backplane, Dual Redundant 330 Watt Power Supplies, or RAID Controller with 128MB Cache (64MB in this case), you can get a 1U Dell rackmount for around $2300. You're probably looking at $1,000 or so for your server, compared with the current Ebay listings for the same server model:

    i wouldnt value this above $800, although people on ebay regularly overpay, so trying your luck there may be a decent option.
