Hi! Can anyone recommend a component list for a good minecraft server hosting pc. If you could also offer an alternative cheap to buy I would be interested. Also an OS recommendation would be handy! |
What components should I use to build a server pc?

Any old piece of shit. A friend uses a cranky old P4 laptop with a broken screen to host an MC server and it runs a charm. Your only concern is upstream bandwidth.

I'd suspect one key component is a PSU. That's a power supply unit.
Yes, this kind, preferably.

I was thinking about doing something similar for all my media.I want to copy all my misses cds and dvd's (1000+) onto a central hub and stream them wireless throughout our place (she wants music in the bathroom/bedroom).
But I wouldn't have a fucking clue where to start.
Its got to be reliable and relatively inexpensive.
Dirtbox from what iv read of your post so far you certainly know your stuff,any idea what components/software I would need?
Get a NAS. It's a dumb network storage server, it doesn't run any programs so it can't play media by itself, it just stores it but all devices on the network should be able to read from it.
You'd need a receiver device for a hifi, but tablets, laptops and phones should be fine.
