If you're prepared to install parts then you're certainly prepared to remove some. Yes, it comes with stuff in it. If you don't want the stuff then rip it out and do whatever you'd like with the parts. Hell, you might even be able to ebay them back to someone else and further reduce the cost of the system.
Systems like this are usually pulled from working setups, often a whole data-center that's been obsoleted or upgraded. Often they just rip out the hard drives (and scrap them) and leave the rest of the system as-was from the working environment.
As a result you can often get a good deal on great hardware but accept that it might take a little work. Should be pretty easy to understand. If not then, well, to paraphrase Obi-Wan, "These are not the systems you are looking for..."
