Default WinSrv2K3 and P3Xeon 500MHz

I am interested in purchasing a machine that will run WinSrv2K3 on it fairly well. I have no experience with multi-processor systems. Will a Netfinity 5500 M20 with dual P3-500 MHz Xeons work well with that OS? If not, what is suggested from ACTUAL users and not M$?

Are you set on Intel or will you consider an Athon MP setup?'s gamservers run on a dual MP 1.0gig setup and it was a breeze to get setup. Very stable.

The only issue you will have is I think Win2k3 is still in open beta stages. You might have issues that are related to the beta OS, not your hardware.

Well, unfortunately price is a concern. I am just trying to get a machine setup so that I can get some administrator experience (starting to think about MCSE cert). I do have a dual P2-450 with 384 MB of RAM and a 4.5 and 9.1 SCSI drives. Will that run Win2K3 srv well? And BTW, 2K3 Server has been out since April.
