Basic TF2 server.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I recently started a steam group and we have about 40 members.The staff and I were talking about getting a TF2 server to just be run at one of our houses. Not optimal we know, but its just for the time being. We were thinking around a $250 USD budget. Open box is fine we are just looking for best performance to cost ratio.

Thanks.

$250..total or like a month? You'd be better renting one. Your limiting factor will be your ISPs upload...especially with 40 users.

I know it will be, I don't expect 40 members to ever be on. We have people from all over the world. And 250 for 1 build. We may be able to do collocation after a while.
