Ideas for server
« on: July 14, 2014, 08:17:40 pm »
Hey guys:
Currently I'm using my older gaming computer for the dedicated server. I'm thinking of setting up a new dedicated server, using a Gryphon Z87 MB sent by TG and other parts I have available (16GB DDR3-1600 RAM, video card, power supply, Windows 7, case, etc). I am thinking of getting a 256GB SSD drive for the system and game with an Intel i3 3.4GHz CPU (dual core processor with an 1150 socket) for the horsepower. My question is whether this would be substantial enough to run as the dedicated server only. This will enable me to let Karen use the Windows 7 gaming computer and get rid of her older Windows XP system.
If so, I'll get it set up in the next couple weeks and get the campaign software installed on it.
If that would not be a good enough system, I'll keep the dedicated server we already have and give Karen the new socket-1150 i3 system after I get it assembled.
Thanks for any ideas or suggestions regarding the new equipment.

It sounds ok but I will defer to those amongst us with current knowledge of server requirements.

Cheers

since most server dedicated software doesn't need video, it would be good,, only software needing video need tons of power.. COD to my knowledge needs video... DCS has a server program which does not... anyone know if any code has been written for COD, like we run for il-2 dedicated?
