Yeah, probably better to get something that is likely to run for 10
more years than to squeeze another year out of something old.

Like I said, I had one that ran clean for 3 days, then caught the
intermittent RAM error that was causing the problem.  But, if I hadn't
already had a pile of similar RAM to swap in, I would probably have
been ahead to trash the old box anyway.   It just happened to be the
only large tower case I had with an 8 port SATA controller and room
for a lot of disks and I like using it for backups.
