The first section you have below. I am a little confused because I am not
sure what you refer to? In my emails to you I have just done Reply's
instead of Reply to All, but I think that is what you may be talking about.
Where are you located, I see your email is MSU.edu, what University are you

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.
