imo depends on if you want to buy pre-made with a warranty or build your own. next would be how much money you want to spend. something like that i would look into something with around 16 threads, 64gb of ram, a nice raid 10 set up for the data and raid 0 for the os, lastly probably run linux to save some money. also would try to get at least 2 nic's to team up to the switch.

most of this will depend on how much money you are looking to spend.

This really boils down to budget and need. Find a balance of the two, and you will find the server right for you.

How much are you looking to spend?

its a xeon i7 at 2.4ghz 8core 16 threads, 32gb of ram a raid 1 os and raid 10 data drives for the database and windows 2012 slandered. this would give you room to grow, i.e. add another cpu and a ton more ram.

Quick google got me this.
Quote:
Dell PowerEdge R730. Trusted Platform Module. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is used to generate/store keys, protect/authenticate passwords, and create/store digital certificates. TPM can also be used to enable the BitLocker hard drive encryption feature in Windows Server.

Sd modual looks like its an internal sd card reader my guess is used to load a os off of into the ram for certain setups.

The motherboard would tell you what cpus it is compatible with.
