    These specs for Game Server Hosting?

    Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1230 (8M Cache, 3.20 GHz)
    16GB RAM
    4TB Raid-1 HDD
    10TB Bandwidth
    Are these dedicated server specs decent for game server hosting?

    Any of the E3 series is going to be perfect for most instances, quite simply due to their superior single-threaded performance and higher clock rates.

    What kind of servers are you looking into running?

    Teamspeak, Ventrilo, San Andreas Mutiplayer, Multi Theft Auto, Minecraft (maybe) and ArmA 2/3 (maybe).

    Should do perfectly well for those kinds of applications. I'm not well-versed in Arma, though, so we'll wait for somebody else's opinion on that matter.

    In your opinion, is it good value, spec wise, for money for roughly $90 a month? The backbone provider I've used off and on since 2011 and I do know they're quality.

    I would drop that 4TB HDD, if you don't need that much space, and spring for some RAID-1 SSDs.

    I use the E3-1230 for Minecraft Hosting and it's been great, not had any issues with performance, even when it's been under heavy load. The E3s are great for Minecraft.

    How many ArmA servers are you going to host?

    1-2 concurrently.

    An 1230 is enough, if you want to save some money you may look for something cheaper.

    I'd be looking to host 10-20 SA-MP and MTA servers, combined with 1-2 ArmA and Minecraft and I'd think I'd probably be best to keep the E3-1230 processor?

    If you are going to host also Minecraft, the 1230 is perfect.

    Arma 2-3 use a lot of cpu and a few gb of ram per server. I have had mine break 10mbit upload speed no problem. Its a great game though.
