im considering getting rid of my dual xeon...

im about to get a quad, and i have two dualcores at the moment.

Im considering getting rid of my dual xeon 2.4ghz which crashes about every couple of days when i leave it running continuously. I wanted to ask what you guys think i might be able to get for it on ebay cos if it aint much i wont bother selling it. its just annoying lugging 5 computers around when i start a new animation job when that one is only about 1/5th to 1/6th of my total render power.

its a thermaltake Xaser 3 case, 2x2.4ghz xeon processors. 4x512mb (total 2gb) ram ( i forget what speed.), an iwill dpi 533 sata motherboard with raid, albatron 256mb geforce 6800 GT video card.

what do you guys think? thanks for advice.

Looks like your 'total render power' isn't something to be sneezed at!
When the world will be better.
