Hoping to build a CHEAP server.
This year I am doing a PC servicing class at my school. With this class comes the ability to download all kinds of software for free. (totally legal) I am going to download just about all of it and There is a copy of windows server 2000, server 2003, and server 2008 (well a couple of each like advanced, enterprise) and I want to try to have a cheap home server that I can learn on and maybe but music on it and other things. Now the server does not have to be the latest and greatest server out there just one that is capable of running 2000, and 2003. (not 2008 we will probably use that on our real home server) I was thinking something among the lines of either:
a P3, or like an AMD Sempron, probably and AGP video card if the video is not integrated. I already have a lot of the stuff so here is a list of what I have:
-AGP video card
-Available 512MB OR 1GB stick of DDR memory, OR 512MB of SDR DIMM memory.
Anyways try to keep things to the lowest possible price the most expensive thing in the CHEAP server should be the HDD.
