[Amazon.com] Ultimate File Server - 24 Bay SuperMicro Opteron Servers w/24 Port RAID $299+
Supermicro 24 Bay SATA 4U AMD DC 2.0GHz 8GB H8DME-2 SC846TQ Server
Includes all Trays / Dual Redundant PSU / Opteron Motherboard / RAM / RAID cards to support 24 drives / IMPI / etc.
I picked up two units for the office but figured others may equally be interested for a home file server setup (or equally office storage). I should note though, that supermicro gear like this has pretty loud fans, so you'd need to put it in the basement to not hear it running.

You must ship to a US address / border package service.
I picked up two of the cheaper units myself and 5 of these CPU's http://www.ebay.com/itm/130804591027?ss ... 1497.l2649 as I have a higher end need then a basic load that would be on a file server, still need to find some cpu fans and some extra ram, but all in all best deal on server gear I've seen in a while.
I should note, just the chassis sells new for ~$1200 new on Amazon.com, and that's without motherboard/cpu/ram/raid cards/etc.
