Perhaps not what you’re looking for, but for home use I just replaced an
old Dell GX-110 with a P-III/600MHz with a not as old Dell SFF PC that
I found on Amazon for $70.  Had a built-in broadcom GigE NIC, added
two cheap Realtek cards (PCI and PCI-e), the whole thing came in under
$100, and has power to spare for home use.  It pulls about 14W when
idle, haven’t seen it peak over 25W.

Just another option…  It’s not tiny, but it’s pretty small.
