Sorry, I worded that wrong. Can I have a pc that folds and is a server at the same time?

I see no reason why not. Folding would not interfere with a machines ability to access files.

I'm actually doing that right now. Not exactly a powerhouse but it works.

Just a minecraft server though.

depends on what you mean by server and how much you are using it. I fold on my C2D which i am using as a media server. However if you are going to be using it a lot probably not a good idea.


Yes it can probably do it but think about the cost/benefit of folding on an older computer

that should be able to run as a MC & CS:S servers, they take more RAM than CPU, and you can choose to limit folding to 1 less core than in the machine to give the servers enough, if needed

its a best case 1.4ghz single core. My advice is dont fold on it. You are going to generate less than 100 points a day so not worth the power in my opinion. Although if you dont care at all about the points then go for it
