Cheap server from ebay help

Hello, i was thinking about getting this:

It is between £50-£60
I was wondering whether i should or shouldn't get it. It looks pretty good value for money but i don't know if it will be tacky. If i do get it i want to get more ram, what ram should i get?

Those specs are pretty vague... but for 50-60 I can't see it being a bad deal?

It's going to be a P4 based xeon. What your looking at will be slow, loud, and hot.

I bought something similar for fun a few years ago, thought it might be able to do some folding or something. All the street lights outside dimmed when I turned it on.... LOL! It sucked over 300W out of the wall, and was slower than my old Q6600. It's just not worth investing in old tech, it is simply that Old.
