Looking for a server.

Specs: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
I have a small business that I am starting up. I will have five clients running Windows 7 Pro and am looking for a server. I came across the Dell PowerEdge T110 II which seems like a reasonable priced server for my pockets; BUT I need assistance on selecting the features and OS type. I would greatly appreciate if anyone provides some assistance on selecting the correct options needed so I do not overpay for unnecessary things.
Thanks- Dave

EDIT: Here is the link for the Dell PE-T110 II

According to that site, if you choose Windows 2008 Server, you have to add about $700 to the price. Unix & Linux would be far less. The question is, do you really need a server that runs Active Directory. Any machine can be used to share files. If file & printer shares are all you need, there is no reason to run server software.

Without knowing your requirements it is not possible to answer your question. Your best procedure would be to find an independent dealer who sells several makes and discuss your requirements with them. They should be able to help you pick what will best meet your current and future needs.
