    I just wanted to start a little thread dedicated to what everyone is using as a server at home. I use Rig2 in my sig, for those too lazy to look down here is a quick rundown:

    Processor
    Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.2GHz(400x8)

    Memory
    2GB(2x1GB) G.Skill DDR2-800 4-4-4-12

    Motherboard
    ASUS P5N-E SLI(650i Chipset:()

    Video Card
    eVGA 9600GT Low Power Edition

    Storage
    300GB Western Digital 7200RPM IDE Drive(Main OS Drive)
    3TB(2x1.5TB RAID0) Seagate 5900RPM LP Drives(Data)

    Usage
    File Server
    Media Server(Tversity)
    Print Server
    FTP Server
    Web Server
    Backup Server
    Folding(Of Course!)

    The processor can do 3.9GHz, but the board will only allow 3.2GHz before it goes unstable. I think it is because of the crappy power setup on the board.
    The 9600GT is only temporary. I sold the SLI 9600GSO's that I ahd in there to El_Fiendo. I'm working on getting an upgrade, probably a GTX275, to boost folding numbers some more.
    The Data volume is actually a backup of my main data volume on my main machine, which is running on a RAID5 setup. That is why I went with RAID0 in the server instead of something redundant. Since this is just a backup anyway, if a drive dies and I lose the RAID0 array, all the data is safe on the RAID5 array in my main machine.
    I say the server is a print server, but then cross it out, because it is still set up to be a print server for all the computers in my house. It is connected to an inkjet printer, all the computer in the house can print to it still, however I bought a wireless laser printer a few months back, so the inkjet hasn't been used since...

    Linksys NSLU2 (266mhz Intel IXP420, 32mb SDRAM, 5w PSU) with a 4gb flash drive. Only use it as a file server, and only for files I use often between my different computers (not enough space for music). Whole thing draws 4 watts, idle and load
