I am looking at building a "Game/s Server" for use with Counter-Strike 1.6, Counter-Strike: Source, Team Fortress, Half-Life, Battlefield, etc, etc.
What I would like to know is what hardware I would need to aquire to make a super dooper awesome server, money is no limit as a server is needed for the clan I am part of.
Would I be running Windows or Linux? I know of next to nothing about Linux, but I am willing to learn about Linux if need be.
I would also like to have the option of playing the game/admining on the server too if that is possible.
If anyone could help me with specifications and soforth, please reply!
