To be honest, I think even a 386 could saturate a 768kbs connection. Any modern CPU would be overkill, even a Sempron or Celeron. Generally with a webserver, disk system performance, and RAM are more important than CPU.

Why not consider a virtual private server? You could lease one at a data center for about the cost of your Internet connection, and it would still allow you to learn all the sysadmin stuff, while offering much better performance for your clients.
