Suggestions for device to run MySQL server for XBMC

Hi all,

I use XBMC across multiple devices at home and currently my MySQL database sits on a notebook. The problem is that I don't really want the notebook to be switched on 24/7 so I am looking for alternative devices that could run the server just as well. My router is a Fritz!Box 7360SL but I had no luck so far finding out if it could support MySQL on its own. I was looking for a solution that would not cost a fortune, so please keep that in mind before suggesting $200-worth of equipment.

I'd appreciate any help! Thanks :)
