The T5220 I have uses the same ram as dell power edge 1950/2950 servers, which
is quite affordable on eBay.

It's older tech, but a 64 Gig T5220 would be well under $500, so getting two
(or more) might be in order. The T5240 with two 8 Core, 64 thread processors
would be another option, as they are $135 (about $40 S/H) on eBay with 4x
146GB HDs:


Other configs are also available.

Note - these are loud, but if it's in a server room or colo facility that's no
