Another option is a rebuilt system from one of the major distributors.
I have purchased several from Microcenter (http://microcenter.com).
They usually run from $150 US to just under $1000 U.S.

And of course there is the possibility of finding some company that is
going under and seeing what they might have for sale.

There are also some distributors of older SUN computers that are
reasonably priced.

Just look around.  My son in law found one that had been sat outside for
trash which he recycled (it had a bad memory board).
