Hi there, I'm looking to get a server, but I'm not sure if a dedi or a VPS would be better for me.
I'm planning on running a SVN, low-traffic web server, and IRC bouncer on the server I do buy, and maybe torrent (legal, of course) a little from time to time.
I want to minimize my costs, so I think a VPS is attractive, but I'm not sure how much RAM I'll need for these tasks. I can work within disk space and bandwidth constraints, but the faster the connection, the better.
I'm also decent with linux, so I don't think I'll need a managed server.
