My two servers for my mini-ISP business are similar quad PPro
Proliant 7000 systems that have run without a hitch for years,
and for years I ran dual PPro 200 P6DNF towers and loved them.
There was something about those PPros that really honked.

I have been tempted to replace the Proliants with something
small and blade-ish that didn't suck so much electricity
and space, though. I've paid far more for juice than I
did for the systems.
