Server upgrades


Recommended Posts

I recently bought parts for a server, nothing too high end as it's only used for minecraft at the moment and probably cod4 later on.


Amd athlon 64 x2 4200+ with stock cooler

2gb ddr2 800

asrock n68-s

Ati x300

120gb ata

xclio windtunnel (bought for cheap from a freind, terrible case)

Hec 300w psu


The first thing I want to do is get a new psu, I was thinking of a corsair cx430 but not really sure.

After that I can either upgrade the cpu cooler so I can o'c it or the hdd.

Any ideas of what I should do/what psu to get?

I would opt for more memory, also what OS are you going to use?

In my main server I have an Antec EarthWatts 500W PSU and it is awesone. Silent, reliable and 80 Plus certified. Paid $49 for it :)

I've got another 2 gigs of ram sitting in another pc that I can use.

Unfortunately its running windows 7 at the moment, I tried ubuntu but I just couldn't understand anything on it.

That psu sounds good, but I'm not sure it will need anything near 500w.
