Looking at putting together a server-like build. Would cost around 250-300, it's cheap, with a 32GB SSD, 8 GB @ 1600MHz. MicroATX, it would be for me and a few friends with maybe a CS:S server, Minecraft Server, and an IRC channel. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea what I should do to create my own server. Can you guys link me to a guide/give me a few pointers on how to go about this? :3
Fisrt investigate which server OS all those programs have in common because thats what you'll need to us for an OS. other than that:
$50 motherboard, $50 cpu, $50 case, $50 ram, cheap ssd... no video card needed beyond setting up the server and installing the OS.
Thanks. And it's an IRC server, not channel, sorry.
