Just thought I'd drop off my specs by.
Lenovo Thinkpad T540p (got that one in September)
CPU: Intel Core i7-4700MQ @3.40Ghz (can't even achieve full Pentium emulation under 86box :? )
Memory: 16GB DD3L-1333Mhz
GPU: nVidea GeForce GT 730 + Intel HD Graphics 4600
Drives: -Samsung ??? SSD 250GB (forgot the model)
-DVD/RW Drive
Fingerprint Sensor, TPM Module 1.2, and some other stuff
OS: Windows 10 Pro x64
Got it used for free from a relative, works great. The only problem is that the display has some yellowing due to something heavy being put on it. Originally came with Windows 8 Pro, but I've wiped that out and installed Windows 10 instead.

Some Accessories I use with it: Segate External HDD 2TB, some unbranded chinese wireless mouse.

Older Laptop: Lenovo Ideapad 100 (I had this my main for the past three years until I got the thinkpad)
CPU: Intel Celeron N2840 @2.16Ghz
GPU: Intel HD Graphics Bay Trail (Mobile)
RAM: 8GB DD3L 1333Mhz (Upgraded from 2GB 665Mhz DD3)
Drives: -WD 500GB HDD
-DVD/RW Drive
OS: Windows 7 x64
Used to have Windows 8.1 installed, but then I wiped it and installed Windows 10. Recently though, I've decided to give Windows 7 a go, since I miss Aero (long live Windows 7!).

I've also got a Toshiba Tecra A8, but currently it is in storage and I don't really remember most of its specs. I may take it out in the next week or 2 and replace the thermal paste, but I don't feel like it (the fan runs like crazy and the temp. sensor always reports 90 degrees for some reason, which triggers CPU throttling).

My current self-built system:

Computer name: Bowie
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
Cooler: Stock Wraith Cooler
Motherboard: ASRock B450M Pro4
Memory: 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3000MHz CL15 Corsair Vengeance RGB RAM
GPU: Sapphire Nitro OC+ RX480 8GB
SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 250GB SATA
HDD: 1TB 3.5" Toshiba
PSU: XFX Pro 450W 80+ Bronze
Case: NZXT H400 Black/Black
OS: Windows 10 Pro

Still planning a few upgrades, namely an NVMe SSD, and a larger HDD. That way I have a faster boot/main programs drive, a still plenty fast game and miscellaneous software SATA SSD, and finally an HDD for documents. Which will probably also be upgraded because I'm running out of space on that. Probably will upgrade the PSU to a higher wattage one for more OC/future upgrade headroom as well.

It's 5.3 lbs, or 2.4 kg. Not that heavy, I don't think.

Sometimes I think of building my own web server (which I don't think would really happen anytime soon, because building a server is not very cheap, LOL). So here are my planned specs for my future web server...

Case: Rosewill 2U rackmount server chassis w/ 5 drive bays
CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1200 V6 Kaby Lake @3GHz (turbo boost @3.5GHz)
Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB DDR4 RAM 2400
Hard drive: Seagate BarraCuda 4TB 3.5" HDD 256MB Cache SATA
Motherboard: SUPERMICRO Micro ATX server motherboard
Graphics card: PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 570 DirectX 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 ATX video card
Power supply: SeaSonic 400W server power supply
Operating system: FreeBSD 12.0

Here's some of my planned software for this web server...

Nginx 1.14.2 (which in my opinion is the best web server software)
MySQL 8.0.15
PHP 7.3.2
phpMyAdmin 4.8.5
phpBB3 (because I sometimes think of starting my own forum)

Again, I don't think I would actually build my own server anytime soon, but these are just my planned specs for it.

You would be better off renting a VPS rather than building a server. It's much cheaper and more effective.

I know some other websites that are hosted on a web server owned by the webmasters. I think BetaArchive used to be hosted on a server computer, according to Andy. But yeah, I might end up having to rent a VPS, if things become too expensive. Also, I said I might create my own server.

I would save the cash and not go with the RX 570 for something like that. It draws too much power, and it's really a waste anyway, use it for gaming. I'd recommend getting an HD 6450. Can be had for cheap, and will handle all the display needs. Plus I think it can be passed through to VMs.

With the budget you have from going with a cheaper graphics card, add some redundancy, or at least an SSD to boot from, too.

wtf
why


other questions are also going through my head
Why MySQL 8
Why would you put a graphics card in a web server and not 2 SSDs on some sort of RAID controller
Why would you not use ECC RAM if you're making the expense of a Xeon
Why would you specifically run FreeBSD for a web server
Why aren't you just doing this on a VPS or a dedicated server or something
If you want a physical box to play with why aren't you just buying an old Dell PowerEdge or HP Proliant/similar cheap stuff and throwing some SSDs in?

For real here. You could use a Raspberry Pi for making this kind of web server. Back in the good old days we used to do it on Pentium IIIs and Pentium 4s so no reason to use this much power unless you're planning on making it big. If you're dead set on server hardware find an old Dell Poweredge T130 or a Lenovo TS140. Cheaper actual server hardware.

1. Because MySQL is a good SQL server software. A lot of people use it.
2. Yeah, I got nothing to say about that. Maybe I didn't know that was possible.
3. I heard FreeBSD is a descent operating system for servers. Besides, I already have enough Windows machines.
4. Same answer as #2.
5. I guess I could just do web server stuff on a VPS. But if I wanted a physical machine, I guess a pre-built server would be fine enough, and I could just add some additional memory and storage.
Like I said, it's just a thought. It's not like it would actually happen.

1 MariaDB is way better than MYSQL and a drop in replacement
3 Linux ftw for web server appliances unless you need something that specifically runs on iis(windows)
5 Why buy new? a HP DL 380e G8 can be had for under £300. why would you buy one new when you clearly don't know what you're doing with it.

Realised that it's ridiculous having more RAM in one of my laptops than my main desktop - besides getting out of memory errors so did a bit of a tweak

Dell PowerEdge converted workstation
Intel Xeon E3 v3 4c 8t
32GB RAM
Nvidia GTX 1080 (Palit Super Jetstream, 2151MHz OC, EK full cover waterblock, insane overclocker!)
2 SATA SSDs
Goodness knows how many 2TB HDDs (think about 5 some internal some in external enclosures)
Additional USB 3 card
Mellanox ConnectX3 dual port Infiniband 40Gb/s card
NZXT H440i
EVGA 650W PSU
LG 34" Ultrawide 3440x1440
2x Apple 23" IPS Cinema Display 1920x1200
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (AT2020, Bose Soundlink Mini)

Rebuilt one of my vintage server/gaming machines:
Dual PIII 550 Acer Altos 1100E
2x Pentium 3 550MHz
1GB RAM
ASUS Nvidia GeForce 4 Ti4600
Diamond Monster Sound MX (Aureal Vortex)
4x 18GB Ultra2 Compaq SCSI drives in RAID 0 (living life on the edge)
USB 2.0 card
Mylex DAC960 RAID controller
Adaptec 29xx series Ultra 2 HBA

Also found a mint condition 2007 MacBook Pro in Manhattan last year for well cheap ($60 with the original HDD if I recall, 30 cycles on the original battery...)
Pre-Unibody MacBook Pro
Core2Duo 2.2GHz
4GB RAM
Samsung Evo 850 250GB
Nvidia GeForce 8600GT M
macOS El Capitan
(2.5 hours of battery life for a 12 year old laptop...)

Probably a good idea to figure out what you're going to run first then go on web hosting talk or ask one of us on discord for some mentoring/advice. Seems absolutely insane to run up a $1000+ plus bill for something that really seems like it hasn't been thought out.

Aye, I used to run a Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, Halo: CE, IRC and FTP server for OperationABW on a wee Celeron 500MHz under Windows 98 SE. Saved only by the grace of having two ISA NIC cards slapped in that puny little Hewlett Packard. I later ran some servers on a Prescott P4 for awhile, good fun was had by all.

Since I've not done this in awhile, here's the four machines I have around me most of the time.

Telstar - Custom build PC

Daily driver, this is where I do anything-- write stories, work on worldbuilding, program things for school or personal projects... currently running macOS because I got tired of Windows, and Xorg keeps frustrating me and making me want to throw things so, in for a penny, in for a pound I suppose.

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.4GHz
MOBO: ASUS Maximus VIII HERO; Z170 chipset motherboard
RAM: 32GB DDR4-2666 RAM (all from Corsair)
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB GDDR5 (Founder's Edition)
STOR: 4TB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM
STOR: 1TB Mushkin Reactor SSD (SATA)
STOR: 500GB Samsung 860 EVO SSD (SATA)
STOR: 5TB Seagate Expansion (USB3.0)
DISP: Samsung 28" monitor (4K native, 60Hz)
DISP: Dell SE2416H (1080p native; 60hz) x 2
KBD: Microsoft Natural Keyboard (1995)
Mouse: SteelSeries Sensei Raw Pro Orange (or something stupid like that)
OS: macOS High Sierra 10.13.6
CASE: Fractal Design Define R5

Chalcedon - MacBook Pro, Retina, mid-2015

My carry-around. Goes with me to class and stuff for note-taking and dicking about online during lectures.

CPU: Intel Core i7-4870HQ @ 2.5GHz
RAM: 16GB DDR3-1600MHz
GPU: Intel Iris Pro
STOR: Proprietary Apple SSD (256GB)
DISP: Proprietary Apple Display (15.4", Retina, pixel-doubled 1440x900)
OS: macOS Mojave 10.14.4 Beta

Yikes! - Power Macintosh G4, 1999

Free acquisition a little over a year ago from my grandfather. I cleaned it up and got a fresh copy of Mac OS on it, but haven't been doing much with it since.

CPU: PowerPC G4 @ 400MHz
RAM: 512MB (PC100? I think?)
GPU: ATi Rage Pro (or something similar)
STOR: 20GB IDE hard disk (original to machine)
OS: Mac OS 8.6

Eldritch Beast - IBM PC/XT, 1986

I still need to buy parts for this bloody thing, but I haven't the time or cash to build/purchase an XT-IDE adapter, or find ways to repair the plastics damage to the slightly off-kilter CGA display that came with it. Otherwise, works fine.

CPU: Intel 8088 @ 4.77MHz
RAM: 640KB RAM (+ 8MB Intel AboveBoard EMS card)
GPU: Original IBM CGA adapter (New, not Old)
STOR: None (ST-225s do not operate)
OS: MS-DOS 3.3 (from a diskette provided by compgeke)

That graphics card (GTX 1050) is probably worth more than the entire system it's built around. :?

I wouldn't say. I have that same type of graphics card for my custom build, and it cost around $150. However, my GTX 1050 is by Geforce and not NVIDIA, so I guess they can be a little different in cost.

You know GeForce is the brand NVIDIA has used for consumer GPUs for 2 decades, right?

Sort of. I guess I didn't point that out when I bought my GPU. That must be why my PC mentions NVIDIA in its GPU settings.

In all seriousness, if I were you I'd do some serious upgrades to your PC. Stick a Phenom II X6 in it and some more RAM. That slow, old dual core combined with 2 GB of RAM is seriously holding back your PC man. Even if you're not gaming on it.

I know, really. Unfortunately, I have no opportunity to improve it now. I save money and maybe in the future I will buy necessary parts.

All of the components in my custom build are new and from this era. The graphics card I got actually is a modern GTX 1050, which I bought just last year, but I think it was on sale at Newegg during that time. It's pretty fast and gets the job done well.
