Intel P4 system specs: pre-purchase input requested
Posted on 2005-05-10
I'm about to purchase a system very similar to the one described below. Any input or recommendations regarding the components would be greatly appreciated (as well as rewarded with points).
The system will be used as a Windows Server 2003 system in a small business (3-5 users max) who will access the machine via Terminal Services to run various MS Access queries and MS Excel analyses. Currently we are using a similar system to accomplish the same task (same processor and storage setup). The two drives are to be set up as a single logical drive using RAID 0.
I just want to check whether anyone can spot any obvious deficiencies, potential compatibility issues, or has any suggestions on improving the specs:
