The guy said its a Dell Poweredge, which means all the drives are probably hot swapable, not some cheap drives off pricewatch. I doubt they are scsi seeing as they dont go past 72GB's or so... I'd highly doubt this guy got 3 300GB drives.

You can get PowerEdges with Celeron processors.
Largest SCSI you can get on PowerEdges (at least from Dell) is 146GB in "order form".
But a PowerEdge with 8 drive bays (3 300GB drives, 5 100GB drives) is a 4600 or 6400. Which, I've never seen a 4600 in base configuration under 3K. So, it was a bargain at $5.
But, I've also never seen a PowerEdge (except the lowly ones with Celeron processors) being configured with anything but SCSI.
Seagate makes an Ultra 160 SCSI interface drive that is 182 GB, but it will run ya' at least $900.
