Is This Server A Beast?
I am building my own server for my clan and was thinking instead of buying one get one and custom built one off, so i did and came out with these results. I would like to know how this would do DISCARD my internet connection this is one huge beast so please tell me how many 32 tf2 of cstrike or garrysmod servers it could run.

Operating System: Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64 Hyper V
Processors: 2 x 2.26GHz Intel Xeon E5520 Nehalem Quad-Core / 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache / 1066 FSB
Motherboard: Intel S5520SC / Dual LGA 1366 / Intel 5520 SSI EEB Dual Intel Xeon 5500 series
Memory: 24GB of PC3 10600 ECC / 1333 MHz / 2GB Sticks
Hard Drive: 3 x 500GB 72K Seagate SATA 3.0 GB
CD Burner: 2 x LG DVD-Burner
Power Supply: 1000 Watt Power Supply
Video Card: Onboard
Um, why would you spend that much on a game server when you could build one that would run 10 servers for like 1/10 the cost?
Thats what im doing R-Tard
Ohh we're gonna do the "I'm so smart and you're so stupid game" ok, let's play that.

First of all, you obviously don't know jack shit about servers or PCs, so can you do any justification on that setup? Are you aware of the restrictions of a dual xenon system? Are you aware of the power and heat requirements? You said to "DISCARD" your internet connection (I'm gonna assume you meant disregard and are just stupid), but the problem is that you think spending $8,000 on a PC is going to give you lots of servers, when in reality ALL that matters is your internet connection. Upstream bandwidth is what kills servers, not any of the bullshit stuff you picked off newegg because it was expensive. If you're on DSL you could run just as many servers with a PC built for $400 because YOU HAVE TO HAVE BANDWIDTH.

In the future, either 1) try to learn before you go off half cocked trying to spend daddy's credit card, or 2) don't be such a gigantic douche bag when someone asks you a simple question.

Also those HDDs suck.
And don't ever f'in sass me again.
Wow you have issues i said DISCARD because i have shitty internet connection i will be upgrading in a few weeks WAY before i even think about getting this i am just getting ides on how many servers or game servers can be run on this machine. LOL 8,000$ LOL if you think it is that much that is sad you like WAY off it is around 1300$

IM FUCKING 17 - I get my money from jobs
2x E5520s - 759.98
S5520SC - 519.99

Theres $1300 just on your CPUs and mobo. That includes nothing else (not to mention that memory probably won't work on that mobo). It doesn't include a case that will fit that mobo, both of the power supplies you're going to need because that intel board takes 2x R5 connections, proper cooling etc.

Please just stop.

Woops my bad i press 1 instead of 2 LOL.
DDR3 Standard DDR3 1333 that's what mob says how is it not compatible its ddr3 at 1333 MHz. I didn't list a case i was giving hardware just to see how many server it could run on it.

I really can't teach you all this stuff. Go read some reviews, check mobo compatibility charts, see all the problems people are having making 1333 memory work with xenons, etc.

Okay got 1066 memory is there anything else i need to change? OH i want to get the Xaser computer case but i was looking for a case that was not a server case because all of the pedestal ones look like shit, so i found that case and it says it is SSI compatible. If you can confirm this it would save me thanx. This is if the motherboard would fit.

I also heard it was 10 Megabits for each 32 man server so like if i had like 5 32 man servers and a 50mb upload and download it would use all of that and if i would try to run another server if would lag is that correct? I would get a huge bandwidth cap i have read this before on as that shit just need this question answered thanx in advanced.
You're not running any 32-man TF2 server with cores running at 2.26GHz.
Most people agree that you need at least 2.4GHz to run a good 24-man TF2 server.

I was gonna overclock get it to a stable clock speed.
