Which server is the best bang for my buck? I hope to run XenServer on the one I purchase. The server will be kept in my house, likely in the basement (unfinished). I am a 9th grader so money is tight until I find employment. Would I be able to replace some of the scsi HDD with large ones?
So $75 for one and $100 for the other. Both are old. You presume they both run ok with no issues, etc.? 2gb of ram on either is fine. The second server appears to give you 2x the storage of the first. For the money pick the one that's in the best condition and hope you didn't throw your money away.
