    i fu want to build a good gaming server, i would suggest u using a intel setup. but, i am not the intel guy, so here s a AMD setupt ath will do just find with a linux setup.

    athlon 2000+
    epox 8rda+
    2x512mb pc2700 ddr ram
    120 gb WD HD
    Nvidia fx5600 (i believe u will need to update the bios cause of the linux thing)
    and any case with a 400+ PSU

    that setup cost around 890canadian in my place

    (also, i think u should know already, but if u ar running a linux server to play games, u would need to get WINEX. and tha cost 5dollars a month. (US that is)

    I've never used an Intel system as a server mainly as [email protected] bogs them down to much (and I have tried them though not under Linux which won't be far away now) and an AMD server copes very well for my needs for quite a few years now. :devil:
