  4. yes.
  5. Okay thanks and what about an OS?
  6. It depends, what are you doing? A server OS like Windows 2008 Server is good, but if you are using it more as well, windows 8.1 professional does the job.
  7. And also a Graphics card and case if you guys have anything to recommend.
  8. Okay windows 8/1 pro will work and, This will be used to my dedicated game servers.
  9. Alright, the GPU doesn't need to be that powerful, a GTX 750 would work fine.
  10. Would i have to update my BIOS for on one of those X79 boards for the CPU to work?
  11. No, but it wouldn't hurt.
  12. Alright and will it be possible for me to access the Server from a different computer using Remote Desktop Connection?
  13. Probably, but I have not had any success with RDC. Try some VNC program.
