cheap xeon dual or quad core
go to intel/or you mobo company website and check out compatibility list 
per processor/mobo
a mini itx server with a dual core xeon 4gb ram 150GB velicoraptor 
should be around 550 euro, which imho is good value for money
ps : you will need centos 5.2 or 5.3beta kernels to make most of the 
networking run out of the box (or install kmod)
