    Your internet speed will be the first limitation unless you have 100Mbit+ full.

  3. You can run a 60 gig server, leaving enough space to run minecraft, skype, and chrome, along with a few smaller things at once. So yeah. as Mike said, your limitation will be your internet and your hosting provider. There's a good chance your hosting provider changes your IP every few weeks.
     
  4. i see, the reason why i ask is because this computer seemed to beat whatever i tried throwing at it. funny thing is the total cost of the platform costed less than the cost of an i7 5960x and it get a score of 2007 on cinebench r15
     
  5. Unlimited amount i think lol
     
  6. i ended up selling the computer for a large profit since in the end i didnt need it. i think some dude that wanted to run a bunch of VMs bought it for $2k. of course i pulled out my GPU and HDDs out when i sold it
     
  7. Thats a good job that :)
