I've been wanting to build a server for a while.I like the the fact that you can have dual CPU's and like 8gb of ram.Umm you gotta have windows server.I dont know much about servers but I have a fast intenet connection would like to build a server.
Here's a quick little thing I found, soon to read it.

Windows? Pffft...go Linux! It can handle a lot more RAM natively, can better handle multiple processors more effeciently (with the SMP kernel), and is a lot more stable overall compared to Windows.

Will the server be handling heavy traffic? If not then it probably doesnt need as much power as those Dedicated Xeon Servers.
