well damn i have to rewirte this entire thing...damn thats dumb stupid urls and less than 5 posts.
I am looking at renting a dedicated server for hosting game servers on. Is anyone doing this with server matrix. and if so whats your experience.
Also the game i want to run benefits greatly from amd 64 chips specifically the opterons and the FX 53 chip. Anyone know any dedicated server providers running those setups. I dont want duals as the game makes no use of dual CPUS, and payign for a dual makes no sense. would likely need half a terabyte of traffic a month as well
Another option is for me to buy the box, ahtlon FX 53 chip based and colocate it. I live in the toronto area and the only decent affordable colocate seesm to be prioritycolo.com but even they might be too expensive. considering i can get 1.2 terabyte with server matrix for less money and i get a free server this way too
If anyone can point me to a host that offers a opteron setup of 2.0ghz or more and a half terabyte of bandwidth on a network sufficient for gaming please do..

What game are you talking about? If you're talking about Half-Life, then that's incorrect. I'm not going to start another debate on that, but if you search the forums, you'll find some posts on this topic.
Back to your question, here are a few providers that offer Dual Opterons.
The new FX chip is going to rock for game servers! Can't wait till the price comes down
SM is good for game servers no doubt but if you are basing your decsion on the 'extra' bandwidth they give don't get to concerned with that. A Normally loaded game server running "middle of the road" games should have a hard time exceeding 300-400gb's per month.
