New Server

I got a shaw case off a mate a while back and the powersupply went south in it a few nights ago and now our file server is dead 🙁 what to do what to do ??

I got on the old eBay and found a Dell Poweredge 750 rack mounted server to replace it with real iron and not the consumer stuff we had been running. So here are the specs on the server we bought.
