OK, rant over. I will usually not bid much for servers as they are a special breed of computer with parts that usually don't work in any other computers (SCSI drives, weird motherboards, ECC ram, etc). Whatever you are willing to throw away on the server is what i would bid up to on it. I have an old compaq server here i cant do anything with that someone gave to me for free. It makes a good table top as its about 2 foot square in size.
I just bought a pallet of 20 computers including dells, H-Ps and other brands. All are guaranteed to work and the pallet has monitors, KB's, mouses, Speakers, etc. They are pentium 3 1gigers to pentium 4 2.2 gigers. My cost was $225 for the pallet and i could have bought 8 other pallets for that price.
So you see that i do not think old computers have much value. I usually will give away computer's to young kids that can't afford them if i see they really want to learn how to use them. If you go above $100 for any of them you have probably wasted your money.

On a side note, the cheapest that I have picked up a used computer for was an emachines t2542 (tower only) at a garage sale for $5. They had told me that it had stopped working, so I picked it up for parts. As it turns out the only thing wrong with it was the RAM had somehow become unseated. I snapped it back it place and I currently use the system for the Internet access.
I have also recently been at sales and have seen old Pentium II's with $300 stickers on them.
