lol.

actually that's pretty damn good. if you wanted to host games i'd recommend throwing a new hdd in there and you're set (you can get an 80 gig 7200 RPM Western Diggie for about 45-50 bucks...i'd say it's worth that). Other than that: a p3 can easily host games (speaking from experience) and who gives a shit about the graphics card in the dedicated server...it doesnt really help anything. definitely a good deal bro.

If it does not have a Via chipset in there, slap in a Radeon 9550.

Via Chipset + 9600/9550 = LOCKUP HELL!
