hello there,
I would like to purchase a server so that I can send it to my hosting company to have it run as co-location server.
the current server that we are using has 8GB ram and a Intel Core2 Quad  CPU Q8200  @ 2.33GHz
I am trying to buy a server on eBay maybe twice or three times more powerful than this one..
what do you guys recommend I should buy... used one.. what brand.. specs.. etc.. thanks

Both hosting companies that I work with use exclusively Dell PowerEdge systems.

If you want to buy a server yourself practically as a private person or a small business, you will almost certainly get worse payment conditions from the manufacturers than a big IT company will. Ebay could certainly be an option, but personaly, I have a deep distrust in second-hand hardware.

Anyway, here's a list of Poweredges currently offered on Ebay:
http://compare.ebay.com/spid/30555493?fl=260649870740<yp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=srf

You will see that they are all well inside the price range you specified above, but also none of them even comes close to being "twice or three times more powerful" than your present server.
(You also need to have an idea about the hard disk size and setup.)
