About hardware...
Standart desktop motherboard with vlan support is enough
Standart processor core2 or amd k10 with 2 cores is enough
Standart 2 SATA harddrives (for software raid 1) is enough
Standart DDR2 memory kit 1 or 2 GBytes is enough
Standart case is enoght (400 W)

I think that the cost of standart non 19-inch's server $500 or less
