Is this a decent game server?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I recently put together a pc from old parts with the intention of using it for hosting games at lan parties and maybe internet games.

CPU: AMD Phenom X4 9550 Black Edition, 2.6GHz
http://products.amd.com/en-us/Deskto...=True&f12=True

RAM: Corsair DDR2 800
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-184-_-Product

HDD: Found an old 80GB IDE drive. I think I read that IDE's were 5400rpm and it's better to have a faster spinning drive for hosting games.

So far I've installed a CS:S, Killing Floor, and L4D2 servers. I ran them all at the same time and entered each server at the same time and the CPU usage has never gone above 10%. I haven't tried with multiple people on one server however.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I will most likely be getting 4 more gigs of RAM from a friend, so it will have 8gb.

their might be some lag when all servers are full as each server is running off the same drive.
