* AMD Athlonâ„¢ XP 2600
* 2 x 80GB HD
* 2000GB monthly transfer

This would be $119/month.

Rackspace is about $400, the specs I was given were vague.
* AMD proc
* 1 GB ram
* 1x HD
* 1TB/month

Richard's company:
* Xeon 2.8 GHz 
* 4 GB of DDR-333 
* 4x Seagate Barracuda SATA II drives with RAID (240 GB of usable space, pre-formatting, with RAID5)
* roughly $200/month at our standard rates
* Bandwidth probably extra.

On the other hand, if we want to buy a server, the place I host at,, has
* 1U rack space (standard unit of measure for a rack mounted server.
  Servers are generally 1U, 2U, or 3U.  1U require special heat sinks,
  while 3U and bigger require extra fans).
* Remote reboot
* serial port
* 1mbit rate limited traffic
* $85/month.
downside: a rack mount server is $1000 to $2000 or so.  6 months ago, I
paid $1600 for 2x 2Ghz Opterons, 4G ram, and 4x 120Gb hard disks.
