Default Server investment

What would be a smart investment right now as far as equipment for servers goes.

I have under $800 and I'm looking to buy two machines.

I host locally, so my customers are not experiencing extreme site hits or anything.

So before I go out and waste the money, I just wanted to know what you guys thought.

So you want to use the server as a web server?It really depends how many visitors your website gets,and how much load it produces.

A web server, email server, ftp server.

That's what it's going to be for.

So is this a good idea? Can this amount of money buy good enough hardware?
