I think I have the specs finalized for our new server. If you can offer any suggestions I would appreciate them. This is my first server setup and I am a little nervous. This is the same server as the other posts. This is just a data server that is also out DHCP / domain controller. The only thing I really think I needed to boost was the HD's and NIC. I didn't think the benefits of going from 10K drives to 15K drives would outweigh the costs. As for the NIC, I have been told that as long as it is a Gigibit card, it will be as fast as any other. Also I am having them partition the HD with an OS partition and a data partition. Thanks.
