Suggested Specs for a good dedicated server


Recommended Posts

Hey guys so I have an extra old PC I'm looking to get some upgrades for to make it a dedicated server.  One I fly on now has some lag from the Tomcats so id like to add some upgrades that can handle a lot without breaking my bank.

 

Im not very computer savvy so Im open to all suggestions.  He's what my old PC has:

 

i7-2600K CPU @3.4GHz (is this good enough)

8GB RAM. (should I do 2x16GB or 2x32GB)

Intel HD Graphics 3000  1.6GB (Told I don't need graphics for a server)

 

also not sure what my power supply is on it now but could that become an issue?  Computer is an ibuypower build from 2011.

 

Cheers

Based on experience disks have been the bottle neck rather than cpu or memory, so I would consider upgrading to an SSD. Perhaps 16GB of memory according to the specs, but usually when I check the memory the server is using it sticks to around 8G / it won't use surplus memory anyway.

Otherwise I think the best advice is to just run with what you have, and peer into task manager to see what resource you're running short on.
