hi,

You can get nice gears on ebay for this price and do your home work on
hardware similar to your production setup

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=dual+xeon+server&_sop=16&_lncat=0&_osacat=0&_from=R40&LH_PrefLoc=2&_udhi=500&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR1.TRC0.A0.Xquad+core+xeon+server&_nkw=quad+core+xeon+server&_sacat=0

At least, that's what I'm doing for years...

Hope it helps

PS: If you're really doing this @home, prefer 3U+ servers or you'll blow
WAF at the very second you power it up... been there ;-)
