Default Re: What should I do?

Well yha, both can easily be "servers" depends just how powerfull you want them to be.

You can use cpu-z and it'll tell you abut your work computer cpu and mobo.
CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Youre budgets pretty good... As you are gonna ditch it soon, less is better.

I'd go something like this:

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80605I5750
Newegg.com - XFX HD-687A-ZNFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX80G 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ
Newegg.com - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm SSO CPU Cooler
Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - Operating Systems
Newegg.com - Antec TruePower New TP-650 650W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply

Thats $1163 and you choose a case.

I added a decent size ssd drive, and the beuty of that is you can take it and use it in a laptop when you go.

This build will be great, the cpu won't get bottlenecked and i've added a good cooler to allow a great overclock, so it will be even better.

Thre gpu has double life warrentee, so it will be around in 4 yrs the psu is pretty strong... even though its 550W.
