Ebay seller lucite-bakelite has Sun Ultra-40's. I bought
a dual-core 
dual processor with 8gb, slot load DVD-RW for $149 plus shipping.
single core dual processor at 3ghz, with 12gb, slot load DVD-RW is going
for $169. No disks or sleds, but spuds are common and cheap ($5) and so 
SATA drives. I added two drives to mine, one is a 32gb SSD and the 
other a
500gb spinning rust


For what it's worth, I've bought SGI parts from this
seller in the past,
and the stuff has been in excellent condition and

He's about an hour away from my sister in Ohio. Next
time I go down
there I may have to make a visit in person, if possible :-)
