I have a 1.2 GB 50 pin scsi drive you can have for free if you'll pay the shipping. But as your in Canada, it's prob much cheaper getting the parts more locally.

Edit: If your interested in just getting an Indy, it would be much cheaper still to buy the indy whole as a full mchine is worth less than the sum of it's parts.

Also, you can't ask for "SGI OS" - that is, IRIX, please get it right - unless I'm utterly mistaken...
