Sure seems like a fast file serverMorfiusX said:AMD Athlon 64 3000+
1gb PC 3200
2x Western Digital 320gb SATA (RAID 1)
Running Windows Server 2003 Std, ISA 2006, Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, File and Print Sharing, FTP server, and a few more things.
I also have an 800mhz thin client that is running Asterisk (astLinux) off compact flash.
I used to have more, but I don't like all the power that my stuff was draining. All my servers and networking gear take less than 300 watts to run now. I cut over $50 a month off my power bill by consolidating servers, replacing my 19" CRT with an LCD, and shutting of my PC at night.

Dual 700mhz P3. 440GB HDD. 512mb RAM. Not very good.. but I'm working on that.
Why dont you try Win 2000 on that P3 of yours?Astrogiblet said:I run Win XP Pro with it. Although I'm regretting it. No matter how much I optimize, defrag, etc, that computer is SLOWER then anything I've ever used
AMD RULES said:wow. nice specs...so is single core ok for a file server?
Any of you running Windows Server Enterprise?
I have a question about raid 5.
Say i have 4x320gb sata2 hdds in raid 5, does that mean i have one single large hdd that is 1280gb?
Nice specs so far

It will be much more responsive that that system resource hog (also know as Win XP).
Plus you can still file share with your other XP clients on your LAN.
