I am VERY new to servers but have some experience building PCs.
Just wondering if I could just get an old tray server from eBay and stick an OS on it to run a dedicated server from. The server would be for co-op missions (PvE with AI) for up to around 32 players.
I've been looking at an old Dell PowerEdge R710 server with 2 x Intel Xeon X5680s, 2 x 300GB SAS HDDs, 12 x 4GB DDR3 1600MHz memory cards. Would the old machine be enough or am I missing something?
Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!
