    You might as well start off with a simple Celeron 2.4/512MB, which most companies will offer.

    will that be powerful enough, i was thinking i would need a non-budget processor?

    If you're just looking to startup, the Celeron will suit you fine, you could probably host upwards of 50-100 low-traffic websites fine.

    You would have to provide some details on your operation if you want a more specific recommendation.

    thats great, i thought i would need something more powerful. if thats the case, i could afford to get 1 gig of RAM, that would be more useful??

    Your next step up would be to get a P4 (2.4-3.0)/1GB RAM server. But for a startup like you described, I would buy whatever fits your budget.

    thanks for the advice. think i'm going to go for a 2.8ghz Celeron with 1 gig of ram and 80 gig hard drive

    thanks for you help and quick response
