Hello,

I am really excited about this.. I never really managed a server before. Even though I am using VPC on a Windows Server 2003 platform.. to actually set up a network is really exciting. hehe, but here's what I'm workin' with :whistling: :
Dell PowerEdge 600SC
P4 2.4GHZ
2 GB RAM
3*120GB SATA HDD
Promise FastTrak S150 TX2 Raid Controller
Intel Pro1000 Gigabit Server Adaptor
CD / Floppy Drive

What do you guy think?? And to tell you I payed $300 on eBay. hehe.

server performance always deals with what you use it for....that server should do you well for any home use or anything like that....not bad ...especially for the price...though...i think the PE600sc is a little old...
