Can a server be used as a common home pc ?

I need a powerful pc having multiple high speed processors and a large amount of RAM, on whom running simultaneously and fulltime multiple programs without seeing it to slow down after few hours.

Here's my concerns: can I use a real server as a normal home pc to reach my purpose ? Will I notice any differences than a common desktop pc ?

I was thinking to buy this refurbished server, do you think it's fine to reach my goal ?
HP XW6600 8-Core Xeon VMware Tower Server 24Ghz 16GB RAM Workstation PC Quad x64

Thanks a lot for helping.

Servers tend to be a lot noisier than desktops and workstations, because they need more cooling and don't need to be designed so the noise doesn't distract the user. This is usually an important reason not to use one in the home.

However, the XW6600 isn't a server, it is a workstation and is quiet-ish in operation. It is also, almost, 5 years old though; having been released in January 2008. If you can get it cheap, then it's not a bad deal. I wouldn't pay more than $600 for it because for $800-$900 you can get a PC with much superior specifications now.

For example this: http://bit.ly/Rajros refurbished Dell T1650 is using the latest technology and it's single 4-core processor offers more performance than the two used in the XW6600, offering 50-100% more performance for some things due to technology advancements. When you add in that you get a warranty and memory is so cheap for new systems ($50 for 8GB), the older HP and Dell systems that are all over eBay aren't always the greatest of deals. The other thing to consider is that the problem with these older dual CPU systems are that they can easily use twice the power as a newer single CPU one. That can easily be $100 a year extra to own an older computer if you use it a lot.

I owned a workstation with basically the same specifications as the HP XW6600 you are looking at from their launch in 2008 through to 2011 and can tell you that if you can afford it you are better with something like the Dell I listed. The performance difference is noticeable, even my notebook is now faster and smoother.
