1.5GHz, 512 Mb RAM, 50-100 GBs of data transfer and the server must be

Have you considered dual or quad processor Pentium III servers,
instead of single processor Pentium4 servers?  Given the type of work
the server is doing, you may find multiple Pentium III processors will
outperform a single Pentium4.

Also edshamah...
Have you considered an
AMD processor based server 
running Windows 2000?

Thank you for attention.
Actually, PIII servers are also ok. But i don't need a server with so
much of power, which dual-based can bring. PIII-P4 with 1.5-1.8GHz are
really enough.
AMD servers are also ok.

Here are some host that meet your specifications.  Personally, I would
recommend RackSpace.  You can configure the server to your required
specifications, and they can have a server ready in one hour in some
instances, always within 24 hours.  (For a one-hour setup you will
want to speak to a salesperson on the phone).  I have listed other
providers for your comparison.

AMD 1.53Ghz (Faster and dual available)
Windows 2000
20GB EIDE Drive (Up to 80GB, SCSI, or RAID available)
100GB Bandwidth (Larger and smaller quantities available)
Unfortunately, Sales is gone for the evening, so I am unable to get a
price quote on this configuration at this time.

Intel Pentium4 2Ghz (Dual Pentium III available)
Windows 2000 Server
40GB Drive
200GB Monthly Transfer
"We can normally have your server set up the day after we process your
order, and often even faster. If you have special needs or would like
an exact estimate of installation time for a particular server, please
Email or Call us."

Intel Pentium4 1.8GHZ
Windows 2000 SP3
40GB Drive
100GB Bandwidth (Larger and smaller quantities available)
I spoke with a representative who said their standard turn around time
is 24 hours, however, you can speak to a sales representative to
accelerate deployment.  According to the representative, they can move
quickly, once your order is processed and payment is confirmed.

Dual Intel Pentium III 1 GHZ (2GHZ total)
Windows 2000 Server Edition Service Pack 2 
512MB of ram 
Dual 40GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive
100 GB of monthly data transfer 
Windows 2000 Server Edition Service Pack 2
$729/mo. (May Special, price may have expired)
Unable to reach a representative to confirm setup time limit.

Rather than wait until Monday to speak to sales people, I decided to
post the information now, since you requested a rapid response.  If
you like, I would be happy to follow-up with sales personnel to get
quotes and deployment time confirmations.  If any of the information
is unclear, please do not hesitate to request a clarification.  I hope
you find the information useful.
