in reply to OT: Building a small home server

[...] new equipment seemed rather expensive, and I wanted something small.

New and small may be rather expensive, but if you're willing to live with something a little bigger, Wal-Mart sell Microtel systems with a Via C3 chip for ~$200.

(And, no, this is not an endorsement of Microtel ... just an observation.)

    Around christmas time, I was building a new box as my old one had become out of date, and ran like a one legged man, and I was able to configure a new box (from the case up) relatively inexpensively, using pricewatch.com.

    I got all my pieces within two weeks, and the entire PC (minus CD-ROM, Hard Drive, and floppy) cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $200. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised at the price, and the new box has been great so far.

    And no, I am not getting paid to say this.
