One of the awesome guys that works in my building gave me a server he acquired. Its nothing amazing, but a few hundred dollars I don't have to spend now. It's one quad-core Xeon 3400, 2 1TB drives and 8GB of ECC RAM. I'm gonna max out the RAM (I think it can handle 32) and run OpenStack Dev on it to play with VMs.

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

That's an 1156 part, right? If so, 32 is right. Have fun with it. I'll be getting my parts at the end of the week.

It's a Dell Poweredge T310, so yeah 32. What are you getting?

Har har, I'm no Walter White.

I am not setting up any games on it. It's a homelab.

A pair of these on a supermicro board http://ark.intel.com...6-GTs-Intel-QPI

Still trying to decide what I want to house all the parts in.

As "fun" as a meth lab would be, we at nerd forum (and when I say we I mean the general population of the world) don't condone drug usage topics.
I'm against them anyways.
