Depends what you want it for. Last month I built a couple Asus
Rackmounts. Each had an Asus Rack, Xeon Kensingtons (3220), 4 G RAM, 2
hot swappable ide 160G. Rack came w/ motherboard, fans, 2 nics and
dvd/cdrom. The server starts like a jet engine but then quiets down. I'm
using the servers to host virtual machines, currently kvm, for a small
network. One rack cost $550.
