SRCDS Steam group

is this a good hardware configuration?
-Intel® Atom™ 330 1.6GHz 533MHz 1MB L2 Cache Processer
-Intel D945GCLF2 DDR2/667 Mini-ITX Mainboard w/ Video, Audio, & Gigabit LAN
- 2GB (2GBx1) PC2-4200 DDR2-533 Memory
-500GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM Hard Drive
-Microsoft® Windows® Home Server OEM Version

I'm only wanting to host a 24 slot TF2 server with sourcemod and a few maps.
Not for a 24 slot. Atoms don't perform well for game servers.

Shoot for something in the 2.5GHz range...
A single P4 @ ~ 2.8GHz should be fine for a 24 slot.
Looking for a game server? Visit and pick one up as low as $2.50 / mo!
"Only" and "24 slot TF2 server" don't belong in the same sentence.
You need a processor at around 2.5 GHz to support a 24 slot TF2 server.
Also, you will most likely need more bandwidth then you have from a home connection.

Please do not PM me for server related help

Unfortunately not. TF2 is very resource intensive and since thats a dual-core 1.6ghz atom and SRCDS is does not support running across multiple cores.

A atom could probably run a css 24 slot server at 33 tick, it would likely struggle at 66. TF2 is probably a no go.

The best way to find out is to try it though.
If the OP can tell us how it went it would be fantastic, but I also agree with every other poster that the ATOM is ridiculously hopeless for running game servers.
