Its worth it but dont spend too much money on it.

I have several spare computers.

1x P3 450, 384mb ram, 4.2gb HDD. I put Ubuntu on it and im using it for a web server to serve a local forum at school.

I also have a old mac (powermac 7500/100) that i was given which i use for scanning using os 8. I have heaps of equipment for the mac, like a Zip drive, External 1gb (omfg) HDD and scanner. It's very old but it has a nice big 17" monitor on it though.

And yah know what?! I only got a 500KB/s seconds (ok, can't say only... I'm in Canada here :P, the fastest here) And, the OT (open tibia, I know tibia sucks... not for me that server :P, someone's paying me ), and it doesn't lag a bit... with around 25 peoples on. (Ok, I know not alot... but, the first night I opened it, it's a hell lot)

I run Ubuntu on mine. It serves all sorts of things from Bulletin Boards to HTML to Files on my 100mbit Home network, soon to be relocated to school.
