I'd advise against building your own machine, also against buying a used
server since you might have trouble getting replacement parts depending
on what you get.
I'd rather suggest that you sign up your company with an account at
Rectron and Sahara, they both sell unbranded Intel servers at good
prices and at least you get a guarantee and you can get support if
something goes wrong.
