Luckily and unluckily I noticed several Altix 350 Silicon Graphics 2U Servers on eBay starting at $9.99, ended up winning and getting them shipped to me for an extremely little amount, especially in comparison to the $200+ a single one usually goes for. The unlucky part is that they didn't include a PCI Riser Card for the IO9 or IO10 pci card that has the Ethernet, SCSI/SATA connections etc. So I am on the hunt for some of both. Hopefully I can find one and then get a NUMALink cable to link two together and have a pretty neat MySQL Server.
