Hmmm, I was thinking about making/building my own server (to host a website, forums, maybe CS 1.6). But I don't want to spend the extra money to make it more powerful than if needs to be.
I am pretty sure an i3 is more than enough, but would a core 2 duo be enough.

IBM wants 2,500 for a server, way too much. I figured a desktop/tower server would be enough (and cheaper). Is that what you have?


More importantly, how is your old server doing? specs? I may buy it off you, that is if you're not using it.

My old server isn't really a server. I was hosting at my house before so it's just one of my desktops.

The new server is a real 1U server I got for $300 used. It's about 1/18th as powerful as the old one but it doesn't really matter because serving web pages is no big deal.

hmm, so look for used servers?

How powerful do you recommend?

I just have a puny-ass celeron and it does fine.

It really depends on what you are going to do on it. Just a webserver?

superjer used to host a cs server, but seriously, hlds doesnt need that much computing power(im saying that you get something similar to superjer, except with a better processor)

Oh ya, heh.

You really don't need anything more than I have to run a webserver and CS1.6. Basically any server you can buy will be able to do that. As long as it's from about 2003 or later I wouldn't even begin to worry about it.

Like Superer said, a few hundred dollars. Cheap motherboard, case, the processor will be dirt cheap, a bit of ram... you can get 2 gigs of fast enough RAM for $40 ish. Which would be more than enough.

Are those supposed to be servers? Or just desktop PCs?
