how much can i host?

This might not be the right forum but i am going to ask it anyway.

I have a server with:
4 GB ram
250 GB HD
enough bandwidth

how much cs1.6 servers can i host on this machine?
and how many source servers can i host?

I'm not sure witch game to host. maybe both?

all 12 slots war servers

wich are used on a normal frequency.
(so it could be possible that all servers are fully loaded (10 slots) and they still have to play nice.

I hope someone can help me!
the question is, how nice they should run ;-) if you want a very high quality, don't run more than 1 server per core (i.e. 4 in your case). 2 servers per core will still run very good, more I would not recommend (at least not for war servers).

this is valid for both cs1.6 and css, but do not run both types of servers on the same machine at the same time. (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)

ok, i was told by some good gamehoster in holland that 10 warservers @ 555fps would still run very nice.

but that isnt true than?
it depends on what "very nice" should exactly mean. 8 servers are 2 per core, 10 is not much more... what do you want with so many servers? if you want do sell them, you should take the risk and try it...

btw: 555 fps are not really possible, you will get 500 fps or something a little below ;-) (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)
