[opensuse] Recommendations for a server?
Hi,
I need some basic recommendations for a server.
It won't be cutting edge. As of now I run a postgresql and a wee bit of internal web-serving for 30 people on an average PC. Mainly it hosts the database.

I'm aiming a bit higher now like more than 4GB and a quadcore cpu or something like that. WOW ;)

Is there anything to avoid with the new Suse?
Any issue with certain mainboards, chipsets or CPUs like i7 or the newer AMDs?
The performance of the graphics chip is not really important. An onboard solution would do. Which makes the least problems right now, AMD or Nvidia?

Are there recommendable harddisks?
Currently I've got two 250GB pieces as softraid1 and thats plenty of capacity. I'd like to get the fastest for an affordable price, though.

Is there an UPS that works smoothly with Suse so it can shutdown the server when it needs to?
