Eh, in my experience... sometimes work workstations need a few personal bits to make you as an employee happier. :-) I've got a co-worker who brought in 3 20" widescreen displays (and a second video card) because the extra monitors were worth it to him, but the company wouldn't put up the $1k he spent on it. He's happier, whether work paid for it or not. Anyway, up to you.

Before I start using the Ultra 10, I'd need to put the E-450, E-250, and Sparc5 to work. (The Sparc5 is slower, but draws way less power and is powerful enough for a lot of home networking tasks, so it's better suited than the Ultra 10).

I loved my Sparc5; whisper quiet and you could still stuff a couple of fast SCA drives in it. Surplussed mine five months ago. I have so many boxes I delineated at SPARC64. Not to say I don't still have my HP 712/80. Not a single fan in it, and it'll still run HP/UX 11i (I wouldn't trust it with anything but CDE though).

You've got some good boxes. Those old Enterprise workgroup-class boxes are still fetching a fair price on the market. I got rid of my E250 a couple of years ago. Surprisingly quiet box.
