wondering if my pc would be ok for a smaller server, 6-8 slots I have a athlon XP 2600+ 333fsb, 768 mb of ram, ill have 2 sticks of 512 running in dual channel by the end of next week. My connection wouldnt be called optimal by most but, I've learned over the years how to tweak my rates for my machine. I just want to know, excluding the connection, lets say I had a rockin connection would this PC be able to host a small server? And I also be able to play on it, do my regular everyday things on my pc? I was able to host a decent server in 1.6, about 12 slots on a crappy 1.1 ghz celeron and 256 mb of ram. This is a first with source.

The machine is fine for a dedicated server. However I would say that if you are going to be playing games on the server as well as hosting, then don't bother. Non dedicated servers are generally hopeless.
