    i don't believe that valve has sparc compatible binaries, so it won't work.

    Also, there is no such thing as an 8GHz UltraSparc T1. T1's either run at 1GHz or 1.2GHz.

    I think he means because it has 8 cores running at 1ghz...

    And yeah I don't know if it would work well or at all on Source...look into the new Dual Core Opterons Socket F or soon to be 4 core opterons which would pump out some performance for you.

    Will not work on source. I can tell you from experience (especially hosting source).

    We have a Dual Xeon server from www.Steadfast.net, great pings + network. We host a private BF2-Pro server, Private Counter-Strike Source 100 Tickrate, 600 FPS server and a public Counter-Strike Source 100 Tickrate, 400 FPS server.

    Private CSS server is 12 Slots
    Private BF2 server is 20 slots
    Public CSS server is 18 Slots.

    Run's like a CHAMP.
