      hi all

      It's true that you can buy a PC and install the server operating system on it and it will run fine. The big difference between hardware that is sold as a server and hardware that is sold as a PC is the level of quality of the components and the level of support that Dell will give you.



      In my role as Network Admin at several companies we have used PCs and Servers to run server software, but only use a PC as a server if it's going to be used for testing or as a redundant server for the "real" server. If you are going to be using the equipment as the only server your company has, I definately recommend you get the real server hardware - it will pay off in the long run.

        There is a huge difference between server and your PC. Server has control over other clients in the group, so you can access the other computer from server itself. But not in the case of your personal computer.

              in addition, servers are of higher specifications with very high memory size than a PC. A regular PC cannot perform well when used as a server. Servers are designed to run 24/7. The components in a server can usually handle higher stress.

                servers and personal computers are two separate things as server is used for connection of all its users to each other and with server as well, it has different settings and software made only for servers to keep track of all happenings in network.

                    PC is used for personal use as its name suggest while server offers services to various devices that are connected in a network.The speed of pc is slower than that of server.

                      PC stands for Personal Computer and has become the general term for all desktop computers. The term is often used loosely and is used to identify any computer that uses the AT and ATX form factor. The term SERVER is also a widely used term to describe any hardware or software that provides services meant for use in networks, whether local or wide.

                        The differences are the ultimate capabilities you need in a server. Server chips are capable of being used in multiples whereas desktop CPUs are not.

                        The CPU sockets are different; the chipsets are different, and the motherboards are also different.

                        Server mobos often hold 32GB memory; have multiple 64bit PCI-X buses and slots along with onboard video. Servers don't typically need anything but minimal video capabilities.

                        Generally speaking, PC is much likely a person who has wide scope of knowledge while serve is like a person who is specializing in a certain field (outstanding processing ability).
