    Setting together a Home Server, planning on using it for SE.

    Cpu: I7 3770

    Ram: 16GB Kingston DDR3 HyperX blu 1600MHz

    GPU: Geforce 660 TI

    PSU: 700W

    SSD: 250 GB SSD

    It will run on a 300 DL/UL line

    Hopefully this should be suffcient

    I have one running on an I7-2600 with 4gb ram and a 250gb HDD. It seems to run fine for me alone lol. When i put in my large carrier with 8 small block fighters/gunships it started lagging though. The carrier itself is around 20k blocks. I also have it on a 100dl/5ul connection lol.

    Hi, you're spec and internet are enough to run the dedicated server, the GPU is not necessary, because DS does not make use of it, I keep a dedicated server for a few years already without GPU because the use stays all in CPU and RAM, make sure only to maintain a good internet connection with a good Upload speed, with the problematic net code we have yet, uploading is the key to stability.

    Some stability tips:

    - Ask for heavy scripts not to be used.
    - Attention to the types of mod that will add to your server, mod like ex: "conveyor hinges" are incredible, but they generate lag in case you use many in a mobile grid.
    - Use the SE Toobox application to keep the server clean by deleting lost, unnamed, and mostly high-speed grids (with no owner of course).

    Hope this helps
