[rescue] Poweredge 2650 fans?

I picked up a Dell PowerEdge 2650 today from a surplus outfit for $10. 
It was described as dead and "for parts only." Turns out it has Dual 
Xeon 3.2s and 8GB of RAM in it, powers on fine, but was raided for all 
the fans.

I'm going for a few SAP certifications in a few months, and I really 
need a test-bed for a few instances to play around with. This seems like 
the perfect machine (especially because of the ample RAM) to play around 
with on a budget.

Does anyone have a dead 2650 that they'd be willing to part for the 
fans? I'm willing to pay good money for them ($100?), but with current 
eBay fan pricing, just buying all fans alone (4x CPU, 1x cage, 4x rear) 
would put me in brand new dual quad core special range.
