First of all, always keep the list in the reply. Don't just
continue asking one person or responder, unless you and they have
some side thing to discuss and agree to take it off list. This
is both the polite thing and has a very big practical aspect.
The person responding to one part of the question, may not be
the one who can respond to the rest of it. You want the whole
list to see and be able to respond. Also, the list is archived
in a number of places and if a solution is posted, it can assist
persons in the future who can search one of the archives.
Second, I don't know anything about the applications you are
interested in running. If they run under FreeBSD now, then they
will run on a new machine as long as it has the needed connectors
perripherals and drivers. Almost any of the machines that are
currently made can be configured with most peripherals and connectors.
Since you want a tower, then just look at the vendors listed in that
great URL Ted posted and pick an appropriately configured tower model.
Any of them will work. Just get enough memory and disk and
components to suit your applications.
