Hey I was wondering.... I have a server that I want to sell it's nothing fancy. It has dual Pentium II's, 50 and 68 pin onboard SCSI, 4mb ATI Rage Pro Garphics, and a small Quantam Fireball 3GB HDD. I can Install Red Hat Linux Server Edition OS,including MySQL If you want. Interested? if not its going on ebay. 200$????
wow. the best top of the line server of 1997-1998

what about a dual Xeon
SHG2 PGA603 Dual Xeon motherboard with integrated 8MB graphics $119
and 2x 1.7GHZ Xeon CPU's $130 ($65 each)

total= $249

a dual Xeon is a pretty powerful combination; the onboard video isn't that great, but you don't need a very powerful one for a server since you'll hardly be gaming on it - if you're running a dedicated game server the graphics card isn't even used for the game

Raekwon, in your signature, youre saying that youre going to get an nVidia geforce 6800 ultra . . .

save your money and get the geforce 6800GT . . . you'll save as much as $170!

and if you REALLY want the performance, you can always OC it . . . the difference in the capabilities is very small . . . the price is VERY BIG!
