A parent in our school is donating 3 Compaq 6000's servers to our
school. They are quad P450's with 1 GB RAM and an array of 9GB HD's. I
think they can handle 8GB RAM. I didn't shop too long but it looks like
the going rate is about 260.00 USD per 1 GB stick of ram. Would it be a
worth investment to spend the $ to add 3 GB to these beasts and use them
for a K12 server?.

How does a quad 450 stack up against a current model single processor at
say 1.8Ghz
