Hi Robert,

For what it's worth, we tend to shy away from using used equipment...seems we 
run into more problems than it's usually worth...plus our customers expect 
both us and the OEM to stand behind our bundled servers...but we HAVE sourced 
some good deals on new equipment via eBay; check these guys out- we ordered 4 
of the 1U DUAL 246 AMD Opteron, 2GB RAM units last week, and they got here 
yesterday. (we called them direct and worked a deal starting from the eBay 



Good luck!
