Yeah I'm not entirely sure how necessary 8 GBs of RAM is for a Minecraft server but I know APUs work well with fast RAM speeds. I may overclock it also just for the sake of overclocking. Also I have a spare Corsair 200R so that's also a reason i might build another PC.

So how does it look?

MY minecraft server is very close to those specs. the key is to run in a .jar installation and mod it to use half of your available ram as dedicated to minecraft so that it doesnt try to use bare minimum of like 200mb

good luck.
