    Can the below server system be used as a pc as I have no idea on server systems.

    What would be a reasonable offer on the second hand system below?

    Yeah you could use it as a regular pc, probably a bit of an overkill for everyday type use and i don't think you'd see any advantage of running 8 cores during normal use. The only issue is what OS you will run. You will need a 64bit OS to be able to take advantage of all 8g gigs otherwise you'll only be able to access 3gb with a 32bit OS.

    As for the price i have no idea, you might have to look online to see what similar systems are selling for.

    Second hand? That's a still very good server. Those parts are very expensive. Special memorys and motherboard. It's cheaper to buy some Quad core Intel and normal DDR2 memorys.
