    I'm looking to build a file server for my small office (currently only 2-3
    employees) I don't need anyhting too massive right now but it could be asked
    to doa lot of thing in the next 6 to 12 months, so I'd go a little overboard
    now then have to rebuild later.

    do I really need to go with an opteron? (which are pretty pricy) or can I
    juse use an athlon X2 or even high end athlon 64? I'm going to have at leas
    1GB of RAM, most likely 2GB. going to have a raid array (RAID 0) for backup
    purposes. this is just being used to serve up commently used files right now
    but will eventually be used to:

    host our website
    possibly an exchange server
    DHCP server
    possibly an Asterisk server
    and who knows what else

    thanks!
