    Requirements for a dedicated game server

    I'm new and my experience with server stuff is limited. Suppose I want to setup a game server for a 3D- MMORPG such as Lineage (I mention the game only as an example). I expect to have about 5000 users online. What would be the best configuration for a machine which can handle something like this?
    What is the configuration of an official server of a MMORPG like Star Wars Galaxies? I'm curious about these questions. If anyone can help me, please do so.
    Thanks in advance.

    LOL! 5000 users? You're going to be renting out a server farm for a 5000 user MMORPG.

    How about you ask a company that hosts MMORPG's like Star Wars Galaxies what configiration they have on their servers?

    When you say 5000 users online - do you mean concurrently? (all at the same time) Or 5000 registered users? That answer can make a big difference in wht you'll need.

    5000 users online is going to require more than one server =/

    1kilobyte a second per user, 5000 users = 5000 kilobytes a second or rought 40mbits by itself (you can get a server with this type of bandwidth) but the CPU/ram usage is going to be a problem as well on a single machine. The best choice is to grow with your game and add servers as needed.

    The only way that this could happen is if you ran clustered servers with fast SCSI raids, and a fat pipe. That's if you are expecting to run this many users on the same server.
