PowerEdge T410 Any good?

I'm thinking of getting a PowerEdge T410 for multiple servers in Minecraft, is it any good? If there is any other types of servers you think would be better or come in my need please don't hesitate to say so. I'm looking for a server box that can handle extremely good for Minecraft and with the best Xeon performance processor. If there is any other server box you'd prefer please say so.
