It's not dead... "This seller is currently away until May 31, 2012, and is not processing orders at this time. You can add this item to your watch list to purchase later."
I spoke to the seller this morning... He has more than 30 available!

Does this have an OS already installed?

I really wish I knew more about servers. What would the advantage of the second cpu be? Could you just slap any cpu in there as long as it fits physically? Could I just install WHS and flexraid and have one big drive pool and add drives as I need them? Would this serve up HD video well? What about using Plex to access my movies while I'm on the road...would this do that for me? Sorry I'm such a noob, but I'm really interested if it can do these things for me.

There's gotta be a catch.
That being said, I'm probably gonna take a chance on it...

Thanks, Assassin. This seems like a pretty good deal...would you agree? I bought the guide a day or two after you announced it but haven't finished reading it all. Was working on getting a parts list for a server using your guide when I saw this thread.
I already have your HTPC guide too. Just wanted to say thanks for all you do here and at your blogs. Such a huge help!
I'm still kinda unsure about what a second CPU would do. Is it something I would never even need to worry about? Or is it a feature I would want to use for some reason?

No catch... Really! I know three other people that purchased the same server from this eBay seller.
Just know... That if you are looking for I quiet server... You will need to make some modifications similar to mine.
PS... Make sure you ask for lots of HDD screws.
