I have a tower server with an AMD Athlon 1212 CPU and 8G of ECC RAM to give
away. The above URL has the relative performance of the CPU (it beats the i3
and Core 2 Duo systems but doesn't compete with the quad core CPUs). The CPU
lacks the feature needed for KVM, if you run QEMU it will be in software
emulation mode which is really slow. It used to be a Xen server.
It has PCIe*8 slots so you can't install a decent video card without using a
saw. All RAM slots are full and I think it uses unbuffered DIMMs so expanding
the RAM probably costs more than it's worth.
If you need a 64bit dual-core server with 8G of RAM then this will probably
work quite well. It can work as a desktop system (and did so well for a few
years), but the inbuilt graphics is slow. It makes little noise if you have a
SSD and the CPU is mostly idle.
I can bring it to a LUV meeting.
It should make an excellent FreeNAS  box using ZFS and the ECC RAm;
power consumption might be the only drawback for that use.
