A few quetions about a game server - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Yep, I'd have to agree with Omega. Chances that all those games are going to be filled at the same time are slim anyhow. RAM is a priority, I'm curious how well 2GB will hold up.

I run a TMNX server and COD4 server on my server, and it's only running 1GB and an Athlon 64... both games run great though. When I only had 512mb RAM though, I could definitely tell it needed an upgrade.

Nice build so far
Scotch Tape FTW
Yeah I thought so . Yeah connection is important definitely, I am 98% sure that 20mps down/20mps up will be more than enough bandwidth wise.. I just don't know how the ping will be.

lol thanks, nothing like a small piece of acrylic, Double sided tape to mount everything, and scotch tape to bundle wire... Definitely I high end build

Yeah, I am quite curious as well. I actually got the cpu earlier today and I have finished installing Windows Server 2008, and I am currently downloading SRCDS.

That is some pretty awsome speed you got.
The ping really depends on where the people playing live and where you live. I purposely host my servers in Texas not only for the reason being that it's bandwidth tends to be better overall but because it's the center of the US. It doesn't favor one coast from the other.

Tell me how that Server 2008 OS runs with CSS. I could've opted for it in my server but I went against the "unknown" in favor of the "known" (Server 2003)
