Need Suggestions for a Gaming Server

Ok I have a server already made and I need some suggestions. It will be a file server, maybe DHCP, and a gaming server for lans and maybe online. Here are the specs:

Athlon 2100+ XP
MSI KT3 Ultra Mobo
512MB DDR333
WD Special Edition 40GB
GeForce 2
Intel Pro1000 MT
Lite-On 16x DVD-Rom

What would make it faster for gaming. (as a server)

  1. dedicated game servers dont require too much, what you have is sufficient.

    my computer is so fast, it completes an endless loop in less than 4 seconds!
  2. I would recommend 1GB ram and Raid Hard drives. Depending on the number of games you hosting Ram is used for each one. And when you're serving files and games at the same time the Raid speed will be important. Other than that. What you have will run the server fine.

  3. Athlon 2100+ XP << thats fine
    MSI KT3 Ultra Mobo << fine too
    512MB DDR333 << double (at least)
    WD Special Edition 40GB << (x2 stripe)
    GeForce 2 << overkill
    Intel Pro1000 MT << overkill (unless you are running a gig copper network)
    Lite-On 16x DVD-Rom << overkill
