Would something like a NAS be appropriate for a file server? Might help if you post the amount of users and computers on the network.

I'm not too sure what a NAS is? We've got about 100 users and around 100 computers at the moment on our network but i've put some nice open-source multiplayer games on the school server. I'm not too keen on running them from there too much though due to hogging server resources!

will just subscribe and watch but NAS = Network Area Storage such as using open source projects ( think they are reffered to as that ) called Free NAS and open filer as 2 examples ( at least the only ones I am aware of )

So you already have a working network server, and just want one for running as a games server? The best bet would be to buy a cheap server, or even a pc with 2-4gb of ram in, install server 2003/8 on it and set it up as a member server. (server operating system, and part of the domain, but not a domin controller) Then use this to just run the games.

Thanks for that Steve! How do I set it up as a member server? Will I find that somewhere on our current server in DNS or something?
Thanks so much for the advice by the way!

You need to install the operating system ie.server2003 then go to the control panel>system>computer name>change. then enter the name of your domain and then enter the name and password of an account with permission to joint the domain. hope this makes sence
