Just turned my old gaming PC into a web server... It's my second gen computer, the only one besides my sig rig that I listed stats for.

Have some old pics, but it wasn't a server back then, was it? o_O

I'll have to take a few more, but want to clean the area around it first...

I had some parts laying around, so i got a case and some HDDs, and now i have a simple server that i use for backups and file storage, and whatever other kinds of uses i may come up with.

Specs:
OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (got for free from mircrosoft dreamspark being in school
)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ BE cooled by a AC Freezer 7, underclocked i believe to save power (it hardly goes over 10% when im using it.)
2GB DDR2 RAM
Some 400W PSU
OS HDD: Hitachi 160GB 2.5inch SATA
Data HDDs: 2x WD Green 1TB 3.5inch SATA

I use one WD 1TB for data storage, and the OS backups that drive to the other nightly. (so then i actually have a chance to recover older versions of files)

Was a cheap build and plenty enough power for my needs.





Case side is super thin, so i added some thickness

2x1GB Kingston DDR2-667
PCChips A13G+ MicroATX Mobo
GeForce 6100 integrated video
On-board NIC
Old North-Star case
Apex ATX400 385W PSU

Used for my RuneScape server.

AMD X2 250
Biostar MATX mobo (Frys combo with cpu)
2GB DDR2
Raptor 75GB (OS)
2x 2TB HD (raid 1)
Cheap CM case I picked up for $20 at mwave's warehouse

I needed something very low power for a home file server. All the family pcs/laptops backup to it. Its then running carbonite and backing up the most important files. Eventually I plan to pick up a perc 5 card and do a nice raid 5.

2) What company you work for
3) All of the required information in the Original post

I'm a 10% co-owner of this company and an employee, does that make it partially my equipment?
