    spec a test machine for win 2008 with terminal services

    Need to spec up a machine as test rig for Server 2008 to play with terminal services and find a good book to look at. Obviously the cheaper a pc is the more likely I can get it my boss to agree to it but at the same time I don't want it super slow. It'll have to be a fujitsu siemens workstation.

    dual core mid/high? quadcore?
    ram 2/4 gb more?

    what do you suggest?

    Something from this list should do?

    TOP500 List - November 2009 (1-100) | TOP500 Supercomputing Sites

    I now run a i7 965 with 12GB DDR3 2133Mhz on an Asus Board runs really well but is a bit pricey.

    Get in touch with one of the sponsors on here I'm sure they will kit you out :-)

    haha & that spec sounds better than some of our actual servers!

    and it'll have to come from our existing supplier.
