Hello Everyone,

I am trying to find a solution for hosting clan/unit server. I was looking into renting a dedi server $150+ per month.. but im not really digging that.

My current connection is 10+meg with a 1.2 mps upload speed. (Roadrunner Turbo, if any are familiar) Vista with 4gig ram duo-core 3.0, etc. Pretty good machine basically. The missions I build with Ace Mod keeps the mission files very small so im thinking that would mean that 1.2 mps would be good enuff for a 12 person server? ALso, to add, I have an additional copy of arma (2 cd keys) already.. i was thinking 1 for myself the other for dedicated maybe?

Options:

(1)With similar machine and the purchase of another roadrunner turbo connection would this be good enuff for a 12 slot server, or even a 24? Im thinking i could spend a few hundred bucks and get a very strong machine and pay about 30 dollars more per month, hmmm...

(2) Pay for a dedicated 150+ monthly

(3) I have no idea.. if there are any other options, id appreciate the info.. Ill be sitting on the edge of my seat for the rest of the day watching this thread...
