Certainly an option.  Quick glances hint that the prices are OK, not
great, and these are probably off-lease 3 year old boxes?  Speeds
wouldn't be too much faster than my current workstation, so not much
point for me.  (Though good for someone with no workstation yet!)  I'm
sure the brand new Dell workstations would be fast enough :-) but I
want DIY, and cheaper. :-)

Do you know if those Dells generally have standard size ATX PS or do
they use one of Dell's odd-shaped ones to #%^@@ you over?
