I'd say "not a chance", rather than "might", if you're interested in
even bare minimum acceptable performance. :-)

I guess it kind of depends on what you mean by a "cheap server"...

I know that TigerDirect has some AMD Phenom II X4 and X3 (might be able to unlock the fourth core, depending on motherboard) barebone kits in the $300 or so range. My guess is that's about as cheap as it gets to build a virtualization-capable server as a test/development environment.
