I am going to build a new gaming next week and wondering if my specs and internet speed is going to be enough for multitasking while hosting a minecraft tekkit server with minimal down time.
1. Hosting a Minecraft tekkit server for me and my friends only. Around 3-4 including me. We live in the same country (Hong Kong) so i guess it might be faster.
2. Streaming music from pandora or watching youtube videos
3. Playing other games (with my minecraft client off), games such as bo2, bf3, LoL etc
4. Chatting on skype with 1-10 friends (while gaming, the conference call will go on for any game we play, including minecraft)
5. Basic web surfing (facebook, forums etc)
Planned computer specs:
Corsair vengeance 8gb
Sapphire AMD 7970 Vapor-x 3gb
ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 mobo
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Antec one computer case (might change depending on the availability in local shops)
Test from Speedtest.net
Now, this test is taken on my macbook pro 13" using WIFI, there was nothing else running except chrome with a few tabs including a paused youtube video.
Theres usually no one at home except me and my mom (she watches tv shows on her computer at most, no downloading). However, once my dad comes home he usually VNCs back to his office computer to continue working, while my sister use Facebook and watch youtube videos. We all have smartphones and they are connected to our WIFI (except mine) where we check for messages from time to time.
My internet subscription plan stated by my ISP is 1000mbps down and 1000mbps up, using optic fibre up to the modem, everything else is a cheap lan cable. Oh and since my computer is in the room, i have to pass through a 5-way hub connected to router and my computer.
Am i going to run into any lag or problems? My current router is limited to 100mbps, its a old one but i might upgrade in the future. Anything i need to upgrade to get the best performance?
EDIT: I did the speedtest for around 4-5 times, and sometimes the download would drop to about 5mbps and the upload drops to 2.x mbps (never went lower than 2mbps), im not sure what caused that but the majority of the tests were around 20up 20down
