    What will be the best dedicated server for me? :)

    Hi, I wil be using a dedicated server to host game servers, such as all Half-Life mods(counter-strike etc..). I'm just wondering what will be the best processor & the best connection (Backbone + switch connection) for hosting about 8xgame servers of 14slots each & do you have any website of dedicated server that you could suggest me, thank you very much for you're help.

    Maybe this will help you:

    I believe their game servers are managed. You may email them though.

    For $200 you can get a Dual Xeon or Dual Opteron that would be great for gaming. Typically gamers dont need very large hard drives, see if you can talk them into giving you some extra ram in exchange for a smaller hdd. Good luck!
