Big Network need help with hosting

Discussion in 'Hosting Advice' started by Joseph20, Jul 3, 2021.

  1. Hey guys,
    I'm looking for a dedicated server that can hold like 300 players in 4 servers
    Survival, 2 Lobbies and Creative.

    What is your advice?
    Ryzen 9 3900X
    Ryzen 7 5800X
    Intel i7 7700k or 9700k

    Which one of those will give me the solution to hold this server, if you have a host recommend you are more then welcome to send a link here (EU please).

    Budget: 170$~
    RAM: 64GB (need to have option to upgrade to 128 in the future)

  2. Since it can address the scale able 128GB you will need and likely would be within your budget.
     
  3. 3900x is enough for 5 server that will hold like 300 players?
     
  4. Most certainly if you are able to utilize all it's cores. :)

    Keep in mind though per instance wise you'll get much less but it's the matter just spinning up more instances as they begins to "fill" the main thread. :)
     
  5. And if i will go for the 5800x i will get better performance right?
     
  6. You would but it will probably be in the $240~ range which would not be worth it at all. For the performance gain you would get for it.

    Would be like upgrading a car from a 4 seaters to a 6 seaters but the 6 seaters is 80% more expensive than the 4 seaters.
     
  7. Dedicated servers at EU providers normally are a lot cheaper than the same configuration in US.

    Both of these CPUs are very good and should fit your needs. I would go for the 5800X as there are a few EU providers which offer it within your budget, even with 128GB RAM.

  8. As for those providers, you'll probably want to go with Hetzner or OVH who both offer machines with the sort of specs you're looking for.
