If it's cheap-cheap, it's a nice system.  However, it is not runnable
without the I/O drawer.  You might be better off with a 7044 system,
which will be smaller and easier on the power bill.

Also, if you want more than a couple disks in the system (there's room
for either two or four--I forget which) in the I/O drawer, you need
external storage.
