I have been using a PC for a server and I am going to purchase another one but with a little more power. It will be used as a server running server 2003 software. It house access databases on a shared drive and runs a VB6 app to gather information and store in the shared database. I have not purchased a actual server due to the costs for what you get and the fact that this PC is not going to be utilized as a true server. No Active Directory or the likes.
I was wondering which chip would be better for multitasking apps and any other things I should look for in purchaseing a PC to be utilized this way?
