Never Mind. The used server was sold already

We are getting ready to upgrade our server here at work and my experiance with these is limited. OPTION A is a new machine while OPTION B is approx 2 yrs old and used by our network guys to run their SQL in their colo. There is a $2,300 price difference between the two, but i don't want to get into something that is already outdated or slower than the new unit.
