have to agree.  I am typing this on a DL585 server (from ebay) with 60GB of
RAM (also from ebay).
Come to think of it, the triple-head sun-ray clients I
am typing on also are courtesy of ebay.

Just be careful what you buy.  I
almost bought 16GB of fully-buffered when I needed registered RAM.
Seller was
very cool about it and let me back out before the auction was complete.
