I am going to build a Development Web Server/Workstation. I am deciding on the hardware. I will be running

- Ubuntu Linux
- LAMP Stack (Apache/MySQL/PHP)
- Node.js
- Cloud9 IDE
- Virtual Box with Virtual Machines, for testing etc

Considerations:

- Heat: Air Con on during Office Hours only
- Power Efficiency
- Performance

So I think the most resource intensive is Virtual Machines. I am considering the below hardware

- Intel Core i5 2400
- Asus H67 M Pro
- Kingston PC3 10600/1333 CL9 2GB x 2 (4GB)
- Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB
- Cooler Master Elite 371
- Cooler Master GX550
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
- Cooler Master Blade Master 120

What are your comments on this build? Recommend something else?

I saw your post in the ubuntu linux forums at another site.
I am guessing the recommendations they gave you were not good enough?

So may i ask you are you doing a workstation or more towards servers?

When I posted the older posts, I was looking more at server as its for office. But I am thinking of building 1 for myself soon. So I am looking for a workstation
