Development Environment so I just need some relatively cheap hardware. I have Operating systems and software already. Just looking for suggestions on hardware.

How cheap? Give us a budget. Just about any motherboard that: 1) Had drivers for MS Server 2008 2) Accepts a Quad-core CPU compatible with virtualization 3) Accepts at least 16 GB of RAM should work out for you. I built mine several years ago, using a Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L motherboard, Intel Core2Quad Q8400 processor, and 8GB of RAM (wanted 16 but DDR2 RAM was too expensive then). -Wolf sends m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
