    Lol yeah, just asking though.
    With server tasks of
    -Minecraft
    -Deploying Windows and WSUS
    -Media Sharing

    All on Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64

    So thats why i was asking bout it..lol.
  3. I'm pretty sure the amd supported ecc ram if you had a motherboard that also worked with ecc memory. Either one would do ok in a simple server; i'm just not sure about what minecraft would need.
  4. I forgot to add that the server is an OS Host and a file sharing server.
    As is right now the server does fine with MC and media sharing but the os hosting part... not so good. Doesnt deploy windows too well neither..
