A good server PC should run 24/7 without problems. However, you won't get a
real good one on a small budget. Good PCs are expensive, and the market is
diluted with garbage that you have to pick through.

The machine's raw speed is irrelevant anyway.

If the Sun is fast enough to do the work, then it doesn't really matter how it
compares to a modern PC.
