Depends on what you intend to to with it.

If you are going to just run a firewall - the cheapest, slowest, 
smallest server you can buy will do fine. If you are going to support 
the newest 'Hot Thing(tm)' on the net and handle 500,000,000 web page 
views a day you are going to need heftier hardware.

You did the equivalent of asking 'can someone give me some advice on 
buying a truck?'

Before any possible answer can be given, the first question must be: 
What do you plan to do with it?
