Welcome to another monthly server price reporting!
March was unusually busy, so this month we’re skipping from February to April.
If you’ve been following along, we’ve been tracking changing parts prices for RAM, SSDs, Hard Drives, CPUs, and a couple of GPUs. Typically this is done monthly, and then shared with WHT and on our blog.
Currently, all listed prices are from ebay, for used hardware. I may start tracking new hardware as well if there is a demand for it.
Prices as of 25th April, 2019
