Hey guys, I have a question for you. I am planning on getting one of the following servers:
1. P4 3.0 Ghz w/HT and 1GB RAM
2. P4 3.2 Ghz w/HT and 2GB RAM
The main purpose of the server is for hosting game servers (mainly counter strike 1.6/source). How many game servers can I run of servers 1 and 2? Is there going to be a big difference in how many game servers I can run between servers 1 and 2?
Also, both servers come with 1200 GB bandwidth, Is that going to limit how many servers I can run (I will also be hosting a ventrilo server).
I doubt you'll have any issue with your bandwidth limit when hosting gameservers.
That said obviously the second one is going to be able to run more because it has more ram alone - but I wouldn't exactly say it would be a "big difference". (big is sort of a relative term, what do you define as big?)
The only way to really find out is by doing it.
I can start up 80 gameservers on a single box I have - but that doesn't mean any of them are going to be playable.
