Spare parts kit for XServe G5 or used server wanted

I wonder if someone has one or more used XServe G5 systems for sale and/or is offering a spare parts kit for this system ?

I’m looking especially for the late models (with support of 2GB RAM modules); other options (harddisks, software, network cards) do not matter. But, of course, the system must be in working condition.

Please drop me a line by e-mail at tobias (at) starenterprise.com and let me know.

Alternatively maybe you know a source where to buy such systems. Recommendations are appreciated as well :slight_smile:

I’ve gotten all of my servers on eBay. You can find G5 Xserves for ~$1000 or even less. I have a dual 2GHz G5 Cluster Node here, as well as a G4 and an Xserve RAID. It’s amazing what people throw away these days…

@waltd: Seems that we speak about different eBay :wink: I even have an auto notification set up and are looking there for months. Just one interesting offer the last weeks, but there I was too slow.

Currently there is a XServe RAID on German eBay; at this time I think it’s around 1.000 €.

Yup, here in the US, we have all the dot bombs and their sheriff-sale
data centers to feed our hardware maw. Not to mention the scads of
university supercomputing clusters that get lapped by the competition
every six weeks (that’s where my Cluster Node came from).
