Ok, so I need some help here...I am really new to the whole server/workstation situation. I am getting ready to start building a couple boxes for a friend of mine and I need to know what you guys would recommend?
After doing some research here is what I found another server company was using to run their gaming servers off of:
Dual 265 Dualcore AMD Opteron Processors
4 GB PC3200 DDR RAM
Seagate SATA 7200RPM HD
Dual 5130 DualCore Intel Xeon Processors
4GB PC2 5300 FB-DIMM DDR2 RAM
Hitachi SAS 15,000RPM HD
Now, unfortunately, I really haven't dealt with these kind of processors before so I wanted to know if someone could set me up with a couple different box specifications. Maybe something like, a top of the line workstation, a better than average workstation and then a decent workstation. I would need to find out how many servers I can run from one box without experience tons of lag or loss. So, if anyone is willing to just give me a little help it would be greatly appreciated.
