onboard lan

Crappy pair of speakers
Scsi card and cable

What exactly are you going to use it as a server for ? You have a decent amount of RAM in that.. so you should be doing okay.. I'm not sure about the price though.

If you have 500 bucks, I'd suggest Dell or somebody who has a new faster computer for about the same money, plus a warrenty!

Hey guys.. Thanks for the replies...
I Like the fact that it has scsi.. but the thing is I have no idea how much scsi is especially an older system like that. Not to mention a 4mm Tape back up drive.. And yeah it has 640 megs of Ram.. I will be running W2k3.. It will run on something that low I've ran it on a 350 once with way less Ram.. Its obviously a server setup..

As far as dell.. 500 bucks? Thats about 400 american.. you think that would get me a decent server? also its dell!!!

but I appreciate your help.. As I said I'm kinda on the fence about buying it.. I'm still not sure.
