Will you upgrade to a system with Dual Core?
 
AMD and Intel have no a nice product line-up of new Dual Core CPU's available in most stores.

Are you going for an upgrade this year?

Not this year. I need a laptop soon so I don't have funds for a new cpu. I'll maybe buy one of those Centrino Duo laptops so that will be dual core then. :D

is there a reason why you stick to AGP board?

it will be used as a server, couldn't care less about graphics ... no-one will work on that pc

it even won't have an attached screen once it's running, or keyboard, or mouse

Only one's i found with integrated graphics also had all kinds of other (unnessary) integrated stuff resulting in a higher price than no integrated graphics + cheapo agp-card.

less = more :D
