bare minimum specs for dedicated server

Recommended Posts


I've read the minimum specs on the official site:

* Dual Core CPU (Intel Pentium 4 3.0 GHz, Intel Core 2.0 GHz, AMD Athlon 3200+ or faster)

* 1 GB RAM

* GPU (Nvidia Geforce 7800 / ATI Radeon 1800 or faster) with Shader Model 3 and 256 MB VRAM

* Windows XP

* DVD (Dual Layer compatible), 10 GB free HDD space

But am wondering if that is actually required to run a dedicated server. For example, with a steam install and running dedicated server, GPU and DVD are irrelevant (unless ARMA does some calculations on the GPU?).

So my question is: is the above an actual hard limitation of the installer (i.e. it won't install or run at all if it detects a single core CPU or less than 1GB RAM) or is this a suggested minimum for any sort of playability?

Sub-question: what is actually the bare minimum spec that will permit install/run as dedicated server, leaving aside issues of performance?
