Minecraft Dedicated Server Build Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if the following specs would be suitable for a server for remotely 15-20 players at any one time. It is LAN based, so the uploads/downloads aren't a concern.

GA-E350N-USB3 - Dual Core (1.6GHz i think, not certain) HD 6310 Graphics; but it's irrelevant.
PSU - 200W or 300W OEM garbage.
4GB 1600MHz Single stick
500GB 7200RPM hard drive (again; probably irrelevant).

Any suggestions would be terrific. The Budget is tiny; like $200 AUD hence why the E-350 combo.

Looks good to me.

Something that is equally important to computer specs which you may need to take into consideration is Internet speeds. I'm not positive what speeds you should be looking for, but probably faster than about 3-5 Mb upload speed.

Taking a look at the Ram, I would make sure you note that the motherboard doesn't support faster than 1333MHz. Other than that, 4gb should be just fine for 20 people.

Otherwise, Internet quality is much more important than the computer, so make sure you have good enough internet.

Hope this helps! thumb.gif

Since it's mostly going to be hosted locally; then i don't see a problem here, thanks for your input. thumb.gif

EDIT; I'm assuming there's no headroom when it comes to overclocking; or even a BIOS to this with?

Actually, you very well could overclock the CPU if you wanted. The BIOS is very easy to work with and you can find a lot of tweaking options within.

I don't know how familiar you are with overclocking, but here is a quick overclock (at the bottom of the page) for it that was slight and stable with stock cooling, as well as other bios information.
