      Celeron D 325 (2.53 GHz), 1 GB RAM, 80 GB hard drive with no bay for expansion, no AGP slot, and integrated video. Yeah, you know you want it.

      It'll be my Windows Server 2003 system. My main system sucks less, but what do you want for a $203 system? And only suckers pay the price Dell quotes.

          From what I understand, the first Celerons sucked but future ones are acceptable (P4 still better): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celeron .

            Just curious how your getting 1GB of memory for $200? You obivously have coupon codes, but the lowest the system can go is $279 + $100 for ram which tells me you have coupons worth $176? On top of that you have your Windows 2003 lisence? Crazy

            Celerons are perfect in the server environment. If you can determine how much CPU speed your site will need, there is no reason to buy a market CPU that is never going to reach 100%. I wouldn't put a Celeron on my desktop to save my life, but I would definately put one in a server.

              Dell Outlet + Windows 2003 trial for now (180 days, at which point I'll consider buying it). I got really lucky to find one preconfigured with 1 GB of RAM at that price, plus $9 in shipping and 5% of $203 in tax.

              It's refurbished with a 90-day warranty.

                Wow. Windows Server 2003 didn't include drivers for any of the basic devices in the system because they're all onboard. Setting stuff up at 800 x 600 with no audio and no network connection sucks.

                But I now have a Windows Server 2003 system that will be my dedicated web, file, and database servers, plus Exchange when I figure it out. I easily configured IIS so that only members of the Windows domain can view pages; everybody else is denied access. Now my test vB forums will actually be legal by being protected from the outside. I set up Remote Desktop Connection so I can just leave the system on in the basement while I'm upstairs.

                The Celeron is surprisingly fast. It boots faster than my desktop. Yes, that's because it has a quarter of the hardware attached to it, but it sounded good, didn't it?

                Anybody know of client software that can run on Windows XP to remotely monitor a Windows Server 2003 system?

                    What if your computer doesn't have an outside at the moment? My PC is not in a case. I had a fan issue last week and until I can resolve it, it has been removed from the case and placed in the cabinet of my desk for better airflow and cooling with a nine inch house fan.

                    Waiting for this case and two 120 MM Fans. I just moved my wife's PC to the same case and it is a breeze to put together.

                        Wow, a case without a completely stupid placement of the USB/Firewire/etc. ports. No door, not on the size bezel, not on the top center, but somewhere you can actually get to.

                          Duel Boot I would like to know this. How does it work? What does it do? Are their more or less security bugs.

                            OH! And another question can you turn a PC into a MAC like I have a old pc and if I got a Mac OS X disk and installed it onto my old pc would it work? What do I need to do in order to make my pc work as a mac? Or should I just buy a MacBook Pro?

                              One of my PCs was running OSX x86, so yes this is possible, but you are best off just buying a mac to get the full/best functionality.
