:hello:  Hello, I am building a 2U server, and it will run on Windows Server 2012 or 2008. It will be used primarily for a minecraft server, with a web and mail server also so I do not have to pay for hosting anymore for my website.

Processor: Intel i7-3820 3.6GHz LGA 2011 -- http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i7-3820-Quad-Core-Processor...
Motherboard: SuperMicro Motherboard -- http://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-LGA2011-Server-Motherb...
RAM: 32gb RAM (2 of these) -- http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Desktop-Memory-...
Heatsink -- http://www.amazon.com/Dynatron-R14-Cooling-Fan-Heatsink...
Rackmount Server Chassis -- http://www.amazon.com/D-200-PFS-Supply-Rackmount-Server...
500w PSU -- http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-eXtreme-Supply-RS50...
RAID Card (Will use RAID 0) -- http://www.amazon.com/Vantec-6-Port-SATA-Host-Card/dp/B...
Extra ethernet card -- http://www.amazon.com/Rosewill-RC-401-EX-Network-1000Mb...
SSD (OS/boot drive) -- www.amazon.com/Samsung-120GB-internal-Solid-MZ-7TD120BW...
Storage drive (website and minecraft server) (2 in RAID 0) -- http://www.amazon.com/OCZ-Vertex-2-5-Inch-Performance-V...

Also, I want to know how to add a webserver to the OS, I have been using a cPanel hosting provider and was wondering how I could get a similar interface on my server without paying 20-50$ a month for licensing. Any suggestions or help would be great, thanks!

Thats an impressive setup, mine runs a semperon at 1.6 ghz and has 3gigs of ram, host a few low traffic sites and a stream music from it. works great. however id recomend linux for a server, i use ubuntu 12.10. i think you can have more for less but with those specs you could run a vista server and be good...lol... back to topic, i host mine for free with apache2 using a dynamic dns since i dont have a static ip, for example, its 100% free. http://www.dnsdynamic.org/

as to the minecraft server, id recomend a modded server if youre all using official minecraft. like tekkit. heres a tut http://www.planetminecraft.com/blog/how-to-make-a-tekki...


you basically port foward port 25565, and run a minecraftserver.jar in the background. i dont know about any cpanel but i did learn the command line way, i find it quite effitient. onece again id like to state, nice setup! another advanteage of linux sever is you can use ssh and edit it from where ever you want. example, i run a command ssh spencer@mywebsite.dnsd.me and thats how i change stuff, you can also copy and paste this way. so intheory, you could make you web html setup then push it to the server and be able to update it and test with out, or rather, minimal downtime, from anywhere, not sure if theres anything like that for windows.
