Hello, im looking for a single 64-bit processor dedicated server to host my games. Im looking for a single processor because i dont want to spend $300/month on a single box. Any providers in/around Chicago that have single Opterons?
Also, i once rented a Dual Opteron from liquidweb and i had trouble running HL with the 64-bit build. It gave me some error, and i had to use it with the 32-bit build because i think the Kernal was out of date or something. Did Valve update this problem?
Any comments on either of these is much appreciated.
Even if you run in 64bit the crappy binaries that valve provides are still buggy and do not take full advantage of the bus bandwidth, just go with a 32bit solution. Also, if spending $300/month on a single box is too much for you, you might be in the wrong bussiness.
