Looking for a solution to monitor our Windows/Linux servers, ideally it would show disk i/o, memory used, network utilisation etc - all the important specs on a server.

I'd like something I can run on a dedicated monitor, so I can see the vital stats during the day.  Any suggestions?

Hmm you guys are going to get me into trouble.... Spiceworks looks more like me, yet weve been running SysAid (paid) for a few years.

Will look at Spiceworks and and then have to convince the boss to switch if it does what we want :)
Guess Ill be saving the company $$ by switching.

GroundWork Monitor, it has a open source (free) edition. It is based on Nagios, which is a great monitoring tool but not so "user friendly", so Groundwork adds a GUI, integration with other tools and much more :)

I use the paid service for monitoring our servers from multiple locations around the globe, but the free service is very good.

Spiceworks is ok, but for a much more complete monitoring you could look at ManageEngine Application Manager (www.manageengine.com). From the same guys who created Zoho. Quite an interesting tool.
