My new (to me) 'cluster in a box, which I'll only run as needed, not 24x7,
uses 125, 240, or about 350 watts, depending on how many blades I have
running. Each blade has 2x Opteron 2419 EE six-core CPU and 48 gigs of RAM...
The off-lease cloud boxes (like this) are designed to be power-efficient...

old computers and you might find new stuff looks attractive!
