geeks.com has Dell 2650 server refurbs for $780:


and "white box" Xeon server for under $400:


(This server is sort of interesting, in that it could make a very interesting 
box with over 100 Gigs of SCSI storage, dual NICs (10/100 and 10/100/1000), 
and even a 56K modem!)

But then again, it is geeks.com... Thought some might be interested based on 
recent Dell server discussions here.
