Long story short, I got a shitty computer as a gift. Instead of trashing it, I decided to see if it was worth selling, and was told it wasn't worth it, but was also suggested to turn it into a server. Evidently, I could (probably) upgrade it to a small gaming server for ~$110. I'm still bummed by the fact that I have to hold on to this piece of shit when I had literally just finished building a PC and one of my main reasons for building one was consolidation so I didn't have to hold onto so many pieces of shit, but after forethought, it could be fairly useful. Sadly, I'm becoming closer and closer to not being able to bother with the bullshit associated with joining random servers for multiplayer games. Since my upload speeds are decent, and my ping is amazing, (my average is probably 20-40ms) I thought I would try out running my own damned gaming servers with blackjack and hookers after I get the parts. It's definitely going to be a small server, since the upgrades will consist of an LGA1150 motherboard, a Celeron processor, and 4GB of RAM. Supposedly, that's enough for several games I play regularly to host a server with a maximum of 20-30 players. Since I'm new to this, I'm partially making this post to ask if anyone who has experience with this has any tips for how to make this run a little more smoothly. I'm also wondering if anyone here in the community would be willing to try this out when I get it running.
