TF2/GMOD Dedicated Server Advice

Hi everybody,

I am pretty knowledgeable on computers(gaming pc's) but I do not know a thing about hosting a game server.The Games would be TF2(16 slots) and Garry's Mod (TTT, 20 slots). Internet is a solid 40 down and 20 up so I think thats good. I have some spare parts from a friend of a friend.

They are:

Intel Core 2 Quad
evga nforce 780i
Corsair Dominator 6gb
Seagate 500gb something
Corsair HX620
evga GTX 275(Is it necessary)

Also what OS is better, Linux or Windows?

I also have another set of processor/mobo from this guy,they are better but they might be overkill.

Intel 920
EVGA x58 3-sli

Any help would be nice!

Thank you,

  1. Unless you tell your ISP You will be hosting. Or you have something in your contract to say you can.. with that many players on a server they will know your doing something and then cut you off for using too much bandwidth.
  2. Do not bump threads.

    My ISP is comcast and I have hosted small stuff before. Plus, lets just say we use tons of bandwith. Better safe than sorry I suppose! :ange:
