    Need dedicated servers for gaming

    Hey!

    I've got several questions concerning Dedicated Server Hosts:
    Background: I need large bandwidth, at least 1000 Gb/month. Gaming Servers have to be allowed. I need a really good ping to most European countries (mainly UK, France, Germany and NL). I need rootaccess.

    1. Suggestions of providers that meet with the criteria mentioned above?
    2. Win servers always uses a lot of server power. Is Linux better in that aspect?
    3. How is a common dimension of game servers- how many percent overload?
    4. Which country provides the fastest network and best pings to surrounding countries (europe based and in generally)

    Please: Don't answer me with stuff like:
    * Noob, dont waste your money on game servers
    * Usage depends on game and settings etc.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Best regards,
    Rev

    Yet another US based actor. My ping to his reference server was over 100 ms - real ******.

    I need a Europe-based actor!

    Well, most dedicated server providers in Asia (esp Singapore, Malaysia, Korea) do not meter data transfer. However, I do not know how good or bad will the pings be will connection from outside Asia.
