Create your own game server!
We have created a guide for hosting your own game server.
To host your own game server you will need a quite powerful server. And here are some things to think about when configuring your server. First of all your server need a powerful processor like a Core 2 Duo, Intel Xeon, Intel Itanium, AMD Opteron, AMD FX or Athlon X2 Dual Core Processor. Now you can also use Intel quad core QX6700 for a really powerful server. The new quad core technology is based on a processor with 4 cores instead of 1 or 2 that you can see in the dual core technology.
All this processors are good server processors. An Intel Core 2 Duo or Intel Pentium D has 2 cores and are therefore more stable when the server is multitasking. Of curse this also goes for AMD Opteron and Athlon X2. But the best you can get for your server is the new server processor that we mentioned above, Intel quad core QX6700. This server processor have 4 cores instead of the 2 cores in Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Pentium D, AMD Opteron and Athlon X2. This new server processor will give your server the edge that is often important in a good game server. For your server you also need at least 1 gigabyte of DDR2 ram. When running a MMORPG games server you should have at least 2 gigabyte of ddr2 ram. And definitely dual core processors like Intel Core 2 Duo. If your server is going to run a lot of files you should also consider buying 2 hard drives. One of them for the operating system you use, like Microsoft 2003 Server, and one for the server emulator program. The preferred hard drives for a server are SATA2 or SCSI with low access time. If you want even more power from your server you can use multiple Dual Core or Intel quad core QX6700 processors from Intel or AMD but for a game server it will hardly be necessary. If buying your own server sounds expensive you can always rent a server over the internet.
If you do not want to host a server, gamesitestop100.com lists a lot of dedicated servers for many games.
To play some of the games, just like with the server, you need a good computer. Even for playing we recommend you to buy an Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Pentium D, AMD Opteron, AMD FX or Athlon X2 Dual Core Processor. Since the latest games demand a lot of power from your computer. For playing the latest games you need a minimum of 1 gigabyte of ram, preferably DDR2. But in difference to hosting a server, here you’re going to need a good graphic card like NVIDIA 7900GTX or ATI X1900XTX. When picking out your graphic card make sure to look up the core speed and the amount of memory.
If you’re not that interested in playing games on your computer you can buy nice workstations at DELL at a fair price. The DELL computers usually come with an Intel Pentium or an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Also DELL provides you with a nice warranty.
