Hi folks,

I'm shopping for a cheap uniprocessor rackmount server which will be 
running exclusively 4.9-RELEASE. It must have a fast processor / memory 
bus, and possibly an integrated dual gigabit copper NIC attached to 
PCI-X bus (plain PCI is not an option). SCSI / RAID stuff is not 
necessary - IDE will do fine.

It seems that both IBM xSeries 305 and Dell PowerEdge 650 might fit... 
Does anyone have experiences with running FreeBSD on those machines? 
Any other alternatives worth considering?
