just followed some friends of friends of friends, and ran into some friends who graduated a few years before me, and I haven't seen in ages.

ok, new project.

Building a web server for personal use that doesn't take a lot of electricity to run.

my current tower (350W power supply) costs me about $35 a month to run, just electricity. sheit. not about to run a server off of that, I'll just boot it when I need it.
I want something (cheap! aka self built) that'll eat very little electricity, and can run linux and apache (or a lighter http daemon).

Right now, I'm thinking maybe pick up a laptop mobo and just stick together a case for it using the vga out. way low cpu usage there, but potentially expensive.


This was just a brainfart over dinner, haven't done any research yet. just wanted to throw it out there and see if anyone has any experience or thoughts on it.
cheers!
