Good for some things. You can get bigger things for ~ $1k in a 1ru
formfactor that take single-core or dual-core CPUs depending on what
you need. (I think the latest whitebox wholesaler was Supermicro who
were pushing AUD $700 1ru barebones 300mm deep servers with an intel
motherboard. Add RAM+CPU+flash, shake and stir.)

How much traffic can a modern intel board with a core 2 duo handle
