I plan to convert a revamped desktop into a small server for professional use and would check if the existing hardware will be enough for the intended use. Having several candidate machines, I need to distinguish what is necessary (or recommended) from what is superfluous.

Should I rather ask my question on:

or on

  • Server Fault (https://serverfault.com/) because my question has to to with a server (altough not directly linked to administration) and because the community for servers is possibly more active here?

I'm myself an IT professional, but altough I gained some experience with servers there're not my core business.

    For personal use, Super User would've taken it. Considering you're turning a desktop into a server I'm not sure it's professional enough for Server Fault, but if you think it is, I'd definitely pick that over Hardware Recs.
