What we plan on to do with it:
- Media Server
- File Server
- Game Server
- Look at what we can learn from a server standpoint
Now we have been running off my old AMD gaming computer, and have been using windows server 2012. Not everything is fully functional, because there are not actual drivers for it, but we did what we could.
Now I have been looking on ebay for the past day, I know the minute I buy one, somebody is going to be like oh here is one that is 10x better at the same price. I know some of you guys are good at looking through Ebay and finding the best.
What we are looking for is 2x the CPU, just because we want it, and it's basically cool lol, we want to see how we can utilize that in an actual server . Highest amount of ram. hard drives are pretty much covered, wouldn't hurt tho. We have about 8tb worth of drives to use. also I need there to be actual drivers for windows server 2012 for the hardware.
We are trying to go as cheap as possible! Thanks for all your help for anybody that does actually help us!
If you have any questions, I would be more then happy to answer!
