Get an x86 server. Not a PPC or a different architecture.

4 grand huh? Get your self a nice set of Conroes whack em in a dual Proc motherboard, add a couple gigs of ECC RAM and a nice Intel Pro Gigabit NIC and your set.

PPC and SPARC wont run windows. Only an OS designed for their architecture (linux, and sometimes Mac OS X). Also, if you compile something for PPC, it will only run on PPC, same for SPARC. Go x86 for compatibility and ease.

EDIT: NYYAA - OK you win. Go Opty 2xx then
