$500 damn.... OK, I got a dell c1100 with dual hyperthreaded quad core xeons and 72 gigs of ram for under $500 off ebay a few months ago.  That is your best bang for $500.

Thanks for all the suggestions.  I'm leaving town for the weekend, and won't have time to research your suggestions until Monday.  I'd like to keep this box under $500 if possible.  Given how easily the DL360 ran all of those services, keeping them all on a single new box should be easy to do.

Can you give us a rough idea of your budget for this project?  Also, how
firm is the requirement to run all services from a single device?  Would
you be willing to split some of the functionality?

I can think of a couple of different ways you could go, depending on
flexibility of requirements.
