I know this is a dedicated server form but i figured this is the best place to post.
I want to build a dedicated box for gaming only. Anyone recommend some good sites that customize boxes for a really good price not so super insanley expensive please post here, im trying to go for a amd64 with 1.5 gigs of ram 80 gig HD is this possible for under 700 dollars?
Dell have servers that are fully customizable online, and they'll send you a fully assembled server.
Iv'e used quite alot of Dell servers in the past (well, over 10), and whilst 3 of those needed initial hardware replacements before going live, all 10 did their job properly and where very reliable.
I know alot of people who have also had to get replacement hardware as soon as theyv'e received their server - I guess Dell's quality control sucks. Still, the replacement procedure is quick and easy (as if they anticapate it).
Dell servers end up being pretty cheap, most of the time even cheaper than if you was to build the thing yourself! I guess that's the power of buying in gigantic bulk.
One problem you may have- Iv'e only ever seen Intel Dell servers, so you'd probably have to drop the AMD64. Still, look on their website, see for yourself
