Building a Server - Page 6

post #51 of 57
Why, you will be stuffing it in a corner....

and you will not be oc'ing.

Also, that computer has LONGEVITY, basicly it is realible if it is just a server.

All you know about computers can be thrown out of the window when it comes to servers. Servers are designed to run 24/7 with as little trouble as possible for 24/7.

BTW: Neo, you seem to be going along EXACTLY with what the guy is saying. I bet a prebuilt will be cheap/better for what he wants to do.

A server doesnt have to be much diffrent then a regular computer apart from needing more ram if your skimpy. I still am worried about your internet connection.

I don’t know if you read my first posts in this thread.

I myself run a server exactly what he is talking about. So I feel I have the required knowledge in this subject. Also, it is not true that everything you know about computers can be thrown out the window when it comes to servers.

The reason I say to not use a pre-built system is because of upgrades/repairs.

Last month the motherboard on my server decided to die. Nothing done to cause it, it just died. Granted it was an ECS piece of crap it doesn’t change the fact that parts do go out. Now if this were a pre-built system I probably would have had trouble replacing the burnt out motherboard and getting my server backup ASAP.

As far as cable internet goes, I have my house networked and am able to run 5 computers, 3 surfing web/watching online movies/listening to online music, 1 running as a server, 1 (my main rig) running any online game with HIGH demand for bandwidth. Incase you are thinking I am just saying this because of the fact that I said I run 5 computers at once doing the said tasks read this. The server runs by itself with demands from outside users, I run my main rig, my brother runs one system, my sister another, and my niece yet another.

My opinion would be that a pre-built system should not be run as a server unless that was its initial purpose. Even then, it is questionable; even more so if you are knowledgeable in how to build a system.

What i am trying to say is a Prebult will FIT his needs. Like I say, a server needs RAM and I/O.

I respect you, just your thought are fluaed, and I bet you are getting a uncapped Bandwith line into your house.

To the server part, an Pre-built is VERY cheap/effective. Servers are NOT Personel Computers, they are a Stand Alone PC that does ONLY what it needs. think of what a server does, it says OK here is that file, or here is your game. It does not need to run the whole game.

I am tired of fighting, pre-built or home biult, a server is a server, if it has the I/O capabiltys and enuf RAM to run, then it is fine

Buying a prebuilt computer will ruin my fun. This is about having a summer project. Building and overclocking is a hobby of mine. Buying anything prebuilt just takes all the fun away.

Yes, I find prebuilt more expensive. The best part of computers is building them I think! It's just one of those things... My advice (again): Check out your internet. If it is fast enough, go ahead, what you don't want to do, is build this thing and realise your net isn't good enough. Then check out parts. If you don't have enough RAM, and it runs slow, buy some more. You don't have to buy it all in one go. For example, start off with 512mb out of your ordinary PC, if that isn't enough, order 1GB, if that isn't enough, order another 1gb or 512mb. The other components, just buy what you think will work. The worst thing that happens is you belive what everyone says, you buy the stuff, but you hate it because it's not your "style". I know it's a bit strange to have a "style" with computer building, but there is one!
