Nope. For $12K you can get
4x 1.9Ghz
No networking
1 disk
No operating system

That's as cheap as it gets. And I don't know about you, but I have a
tough time believing that anyone buys a 4 CPU box without an OS, without
networking, with .5GB of ram, and with one disk.

If you think you are getting a realistic 4 CPU server for $9K from
a vendor, you're dreaming.
