    Ugh, I'm close enough I could drive there and pick it up in about an hour and a half. I've asked if they do local pickup.

    Someone talk me out of this!

    If you're that close it means your electricity costs should make this unappealing enough to not bother. The platform is very old now with limited support. In the end if you just want to leave it unpowered in a rack to look impressive it might be worth your time. If you're looking for functionality there's almost certainly a better way to get what you need with lower TCO.

    Those are really old right? 1Gb networking. They've got ATI GPUs which are old too. SAS 1 backplane

    What's the attraction? looks like a crazy old Core 2 era platform.
    Well... I suppose you might be able to get some data out of the disks, if the seller cba to clean them.

    I've been wanting to fiddle with distributed computing stuff.

    Also, I have a friend up near where it's located, so I wouldn't mind the drive.

    I think I'll probably bid up to $30 or $40 and see what happens.

    no, no and NO. I can see the spinner in my electric meter flying away down the street like a Frisbee. Add DDR2 and it is a non-starter, even for me who likes old crap.

    If you really want a blade server.. I have a C3000 with 2 BL620c G7 (each with 2 E7-2860)... Actually no, I mean yes I am about to list it, but local pickup only.. I'm not dealing with shipping... and I'll list it officially in the marketplace or ebay or wherever

    The reason.. around $350 a month in electricity..... and a really pissed off wife :)

    You do not want a Blade setup.. power hungry, generates a ton of heat (although in Winter I could live with that..).. and sounds like a Boeing 747 on take off...
