Hey Chris - The most cost effective solution these days for webservers is dual athlon servers. for about half the cost of a dual p4, a dual athlon will provide about 15-25% better performance. You could build your own machine with components for around 1500 or you could buy it from a reseller like www.pengiuncomputing.com who i've had real good luck with over the years. If you can provide more details on what kind of traffic you're getting, I can provide more details on what you should be looking for, but that should get you thinking :) .djc.
