Looks like the CPU might be an E5430. Not a bad quadcore chip. But that server will be power hungry, and loud. Also it takes DDR2 FBDIMMS, which are definitely not cheap. In terms of processing power/speed, you're probably better off with a newer i3 CPU and cheap DDR3 RAM.

You may be better off parting that server for parts, as Bluebyte says, replacement parts direct from IBM are not cheap!
