Until recently, my NFS server (which did lots of other things) at home was a 
4U AlphaPC 164LX with a 600MHz 21164A and 2 trays of 12 x 50GB (1.6") 
fiberchannel disk hanging off of it.  If it weren't for the *significant* 
reduction in power bill, I'd still be running that.  I figure it'll take no 
more than about 6 months to make the power savings pay for the 4 x 300GB 
drives that replaced those arrays.
