The box that currently runs is an old dimension, 400 mhz mirrored IDE 256
ram, so anything / everything out there on the market  will be improvement,
as far as putting it together I can most certainly do it,  if it will be
cost-effective, plus I love the thought of it.

I'm not following you entirely on the " pay more for rental but less for the
box" , can you elaborate a bit on that?

Cost. Specs needed parts you can put in yourself. Need more info.

Why not go 2U and pay more for rental but less for the box and 
equipment. You can always check on ebay for 1u cases on the cheap.
