Looking at getting a new box for my Garry’s Mod servers. I hear srcds.exe prefers high clock speeds to number of cores, so that’s why I went with an expensive CPU rather than two cheaper ones. Does it all look well built and compatible?
Darkspider has the money to spend, so that’s not a issue. I have to admit the CPU is really, really expensive. But it would probably help out immensely when it comes to hosting Garry’s Mod servers. I can’t exactly say for sure though as I’ve never used that CPU.
I’ve already told him he should get dual PSU’s for redundancy though, so even if he did get the cheapest as long as he had dual if one went, the other would still work.
I’m pushing 124GB but I have like 50-60GB of copied files which should be deleted. You can easily and usefully run all of your servers off of one installation, I’m pretty sure JetBoom does it with NoxiousNet. I would have gone with a 40-80GB SSD over the current 750GB HDD I have now.
I seriously don’t push 60% load on my X3460 with two PERP servers with 50 clients on one and 20 on the other, a GMR server with 20 clients, a Onslaught server with around 10 clients along with 15 clients on Zombie Survival.
Your SEOW RP, Fortwars and Darklands RPG or whatever + anything else you are running should never constitute this CPU. It’s pointless unless you wish to run 10 servers or something. I also hate to say it but your servers don’t exactly fill up either, I haven’t seen 25+ people in SEOW in a long time and Fortwars is winding down quite a bit in popularity.
There is no justification to blow an extra $300 on a CPU which will never be be utilized. I guess it could be worth it if he’s planning to shut down in a year and use the CPU for himself or something but that’s not exactly something he should be planning on.
