Default Servers

I was given the chance to buy a few servers today:
Dell precision T5400- with keyboard, mouse, and monitor: $350
Dell Precision Server 470- lone server: $100
HP Server 6600- $200 alone
Dell Precision 490- monitor, keyboard, etc 5120 CPUs- $260

Which would YOU get? My hope is to upgrade the RAM and get another GFX card to play some FPS games with low settings, and CAD.

Matt

Wouldn't waste my money, but T5400 seems like the best specs out of all.

No good for gaming with upgraded GPU and RAM? I also need a data server for my dad's blueprints and CAD renders
