    There's some good deals there intermixed with the overpriced boards.

    A lot of $16 (used) boards available from a single seller, only problem is that they come with CPU's, so you'd still have CPUs leftover ;)

    Tyan and Supermicro are good server board brands. Unfortunately, you're not going to find either for cheap, nor 16 GB fully buffered DDR2 RAM which is what S771 requires. You're better off selling the CPUs and buying consumer grade hardware.

    If memory serves, I spent about $800 USD for 8 GiB of RAM for my S771 server.

    nice, but did they support my quad core cpu's ? is same time look for motherboard have normal shape can fit in ATX or E-ATX custom build by me

    yes i know, that's 's why i need your help guys.


    i don't expect find some good deal for it, also i need low cost server for people who need play light games like counter strike, COD 4. so this servers will be useful.

    Nothing is "low cost" on S771. If you want low cost, go with AMD multi-core processors. You can usually host one server for each game per core. You could probably buy a two-way, 12-core processor system (24 cores total) for less than it would cost to even assemble half of those S771 systems and it would have equal or greater processing power.
