    Which server is GOOD

    Which would be the best choice of the following servers, for me to use for PHP/MySQL hosting with RedHat7.3

    AMD Athlon™ XP 1600 1.4Ghz
    256MB SDRAM
    9GB SCSI

    Intel Pentium™ 3 Dual 550Mhz
    256MB SDRAM
    9GB SCSI

    Both servers look good but I would suggest getting more RAM. 256mb seems a bit low for a server, just my thoughts.

    Okay, we can make the RAM to 512, but which one you will select if you are given a choice?

    I would go for the dual system. Also, You may want to consider buying a bigger hard drive. You can buy a 36 gig off ebay for about $200.

    Good Luck.

    the dual will be better for you - and you really should look into a larger HD and more ram -

    Right on.. Dual all the way...

    I agree with the others, memory is so cheap now, you might as well go with 1gig.

    Are building this, or is this something that a hosting company offers? You may want to look into a RAID if you go with SCSI..
