    Default I am trying to decide on what to use for my new server

    Basically i want to build a new server, 64 bit. File server, local
    web pages, mail gateway (maybe), leafnode (modified), DHCP, local
    nameserver, things like this. Just one machine to backup, i hope.
    That reminds me i should upgrade the wired network to GB. I am
    interested in motherboards with PCI-E (and maybe PCI-X) and SCSI
    160/320 cards (5 fast drives, though small). Video is no big though i
    am thinking of running headless. Other machines for sound as well. I
    wish to have current user reports to amplify the HCL which is
    noticeably inconsistent and often dated for this use.

    Which mainboard. If the mainboard does not provide SCSI 160/320 which
    SCSI card?

    I'm very pleased with my old Via C3-powered mini-ITX that does all
    that - and a bit more while drawing under 30 watts at the wall.
    Newer C7 nanoBGA (not the regular C7s) CPUs are 64-bit and support
    virtualization with more processing power and lower power consumption
    than the Atoms. They cost more, but there are boards available with
    PCI-E.

    That might not install cleanly in my ATX / EATX case. And i do want
    to run hellishly compute & disk intensive sims.
