will this work as a server for a few small websites. I know that servers are memory intensive so does anyone know where i can get some cheap memory?

Newegg.com is a good place to look for some mermory

Second of all yes that will run a server. I used to run a webserver on an old Pentium 2 233 with 128Mb of ram... Now I am not sure that it will handle 250 people at the same time but I don't really think that your internet connection can either.

BTW Check with your ISP to make sure running a web server doesn't violate your TOS (Terms of Service). Often they don't allow running of any kind of server and they often block port 80 wich is used for web servers. You may have to upgrade your service to something like Business Class.

They only thing I would check is if it has Windows XP. It will make turning it into a server alot easier. Just flip on file and print sharing and you're pretty good to go... If it is running Windows 98 or something a little harder...
