A quick run on the newegg.ca website showed that for $286 I would have
PNY XLR8 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
SUPERMICRO CSE-502L-200B Black 1U Rackmount Mini Server Chassis
That'd be a brand new machine with the possibility of adding another 8GB in the future if needed... Packages are always getting bigger and more demanding, extra RAM is never bad.
However, that's a bit over my budget of around 175$, and wouldnt provide the IPMI function..
I have to think about that... How noisy of the PSU fan of the 5015A??
