Hello,


I want to setup a server @ my office for testing my websites which uses Classic ASP/SQL Server 2005/IIS etc.

The operating system we would like to have is Windows 2003 server.

Due to my low budget I would like to go for an assembled one. So I need some nice hardware configuration to setup this server. Eg: 2 GB Ram, dual screen monitor etc


Can you post some nice configuration?



Thanx in advance.

That is to Dell's starter server. You can configure them however you want. Base price is $1199 to $1499.

Is it too hard to pick out the components you want and have Dell put it together and ship it to you?

He does speak the truth, you guys are probably posting some deals for nice computers at low costs, right? But remember you can also find nice deals for individual parts. Also assembling is better for just the experience.

Try NCIX.com which has good deals and cheap shipping, tigerdirect.ca is also good because it's huge selection and good prices.

Some good parts you should consider are:
-An Intel Xeon processor (or core 2 duo)
-an 10k RPM (althought 7200RPMs are still awesome) hard drive for good speed around 500gb+ (depends)
-Any mobo that supports xeon, supports atleast 8gb of DRR2 or DDR3 ram, and supports the latest gpu's.
-For the Graphics card I'd wait for the Geforce 9 series to come out, and then get any 8 or 9 series card.
-the other components It does not matter too much, But get as much RAM as possible and a nice case for good stable cooling.
