Hello ,
i was gonna start hosting game servers and after a lot of research i've found the following set up will be able to handle around 200 - 250 players at a time ... so just wanted to ask - is this good enough ??

Intel Xeon E3-1270 processor (four physical 3.4ghz cores on QPI + hyperthreading + turbo->3.8ghz)
16 GB DDR3-1333 ECC memory
1000 GB, 7200 RPM SATA hard drive
10 Mbps Upload

More about : good

- You don't need 1TB storage.
- You don't need 16GB RAM, servers do not load textures they only do physics, bounds checking and network (with TCP/IP offload to NIC).
- You did not specify which game server (process.exe) you are running, nor your tests leading to your premature conclusion: "after a lot of research i've found the following set up will be able to handle around 200 - 250 players at a time".

If you were talking about a Source Engine game the number of players would be closer to 2000.
