Bare Dell 12 physical core server $330

Recommended Posts

Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Build-Your-Own-Dell-T5500-Workstation-12-Core-2-26GHz-L5640-No-OS-Wholesale/183154529488?hash=item2aa4dc54d0:m:mWWzUAGChuLJwdbrE8AATbA

What you get: case, CPU (info below), power supply, motherboard, DVD.

You need to add: Storage, memory, video card.

CPU is dual, 2x Intel Xeon L5640: https://ark.intel.com/products/47926/Intel-Xeon-Processor-L5640-12M-Cache-2_26-GHz-5_86-GTs-Intel-QPI

That's pretty nice for a starter server that can do lots of things.

If I had a server and didn't care for the power consumption costs of running it, I'd probably use it for the following purposes:


  • Web Server
    • Forums / Hosting 
  • VOIP Server
  • Game Server
  • Media Server

Would take some time to configure but all fun applications to have self control vs paying for a service.
