I'm willing to use the following build as server where running bitcoind server, MySQL and PHP:

MOBO: ASRock 775i945gz
CPU: Intel Celeron D 347
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS or Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX
RAM: Corsair XMS2 DHZ 2x1GB
SSD: Samsung Evo 120 GB

There I'll receive/send bitcoins only through RPC commands and save tx infos on database (all of this done via PHP and C++).
What OS would you recomend me to use for best performances and security?

debian or freeBSD.



p.s. take lubuntu instead of ubuntu (your first choice) if you don't increase RAM and need GUI.

I heard many times of Lubuntu in the past but never tried it, I'll give it a look since it fits my specs and needs if it's as you say.
By the way I worked on FreeBSD (since 7.x) for 5 years or so, but I'm not willing to continue using it because it starts being frustrating  Lips sealed

stick with debian.

That's my second choice right after Ubuntu  Wink

Because a friend of mine will work on the server with me but, unfortunately, he isn't very familiar to Linux.

Learning debian and learning Ubunutu is next to no difference. They are very similar, the biggest difference is probably what software you can get directly from the repos.

because both are .deb based with apt-get on top of it, software is literally same.
