    do you have a server case? I guess the Silverstone tj09 case I just ordered fits a server mobo inside, has amazing cooling and it looks real nice... about the other server hardware.. I dont know anything about that lol.

    Case size doesn't matter as long as it isn't a BIG BIG Case.

    Web server?

    Home means using an ol' case. Co-loc would most likely require a rackmount (1U, as you usually pay by the U at a host).

    What are you going to use this server for, and how much traffic is it going to get. If you're just making a home file server, or want to piddle around with a low traffic site you don't need anything powerful at all. I use a PIII for an FTP server on occasion, its transfer rates are more limited by the internet connection than the components it contains.

    Unless you're dealing in high volume traffic, with lots of people accessing large amounts of data, a sever doesn't need to be anything powerful at all.
