First off, sorry is this is wrong topic, hope its not cause i coudn't fit it into any other category.
I'm in process of buying/building a custom server, not high end but something to start with, something that costs around $1200. Was thinking of some version of AMD Athlon 64 with 2 gigs of ram and 2 SATA drives for RAID 1 with either Debian or Ubuntu for server.
I'm not an expert or anything when it comes to hardware so putting this server together with the right components is hard for me. Anyone here who can suggest me a builded custom server for that price or even list me all the important components (MB, CPU, what kind of ram,...). Oh, buying Dell, HP or anyother branded server is not an option so don't suggest that please
Also important is that Debian supports all the hardware in case i go with Debian cause well, Ubuntu is not really server based distro yet..
