I have a system lying around which consists of an AMD Athlon 64 3800+ CPU and 4GB of RAM - it is also running Windows Server 2003 R2.

Is this spec good enough to run MS Server 2005 Std or should I look at changing it? It will not be a mission-critical server that needs to be running 24/7.

Many thanks

You can find specific details on MS recommended minimums and you exceed them as they are pretty low.  Obviously this is not what you want for production but for testing just fine.
