I've never shopped on Ebay before, but I was surprised to see how many good deals there are. I was able to get 6 Dell GX240 computers (1.5 Ghz, 256 Mb Ram, 20 Gig HD) for under 400 bucks! I'm upgrading them to 3 Ghz, 1 Gig, and 150 Gig HD for cheap and building a data center for my new shopping search engine. I've already got 120,000 retailers and 5,300 shopping categories and by the end of Feb, 7,900,000 products on the web site. I've never set up a 'real' network before, so here goes nothing! I welcome all cargo bay pics.

Quoting Piercey (Reply 3): Companies are either upgrading or shrinking, or somebody just got the deal of a lifetime and is making moolah off it.
True, that is where the systems come from, but I'm definately not complaining. Think about it this way, buy all 100 systems for 63 dollars each, buy some wholseale memory and CPUs, upgrade them and you're looking at a pretty decent profit margin.
