Need SSD Dedi

New Member
I am fully aware that finding this sort of deal within my budget is highly unlikely.

This is for my Bukkit Minecraft server. Impress Naruto.

 

Type: Dedicated. Tired of sharing.

CPU: Any quad over 3Ghz.

RAM: 8GB DDR 3.

Disk: SSD

Port: 100Mbps is fine.

Budget: $60 max. <-Don't laugh at the poor.

Notes: I'm not prone to DDoS. If I ban some kid who happens to frequent HF, I don't want terminated over it.

I informed him to post it in here instead of the VPS Request forum (due to the VPS Request forum being for VPSes).  So yell at me if it's not in the right place.

I know a lot of people are thinking this right now but won't say it but I'll be the one with the balls and the nerve to say it: You can't expect the world served to you on a silver platter for pennies.

Companies exist for a reason: to make money. A lot of people work in this industry as their full time job and they need to put food on the table, it's ridiculous how people show absolutely no respect for the hosting industry at all. Honestly, you're expecting to pay less for a full month lease of a good server than what I spend for an average one night dinner at a restaurant.

It might be cheaper to build that server and colocate it.

This could be done with a L5420 or similar dual quad core.  Isn't 3GHZ or above though, but note I said DUAL QUAD.  Not a single QUAD.

Bundle with that a 60GB SSD. Certainly aren't getting a Samsung or Intel SSD at budget.

Really not an expensive machine if you come down on the CPU speed.

What is the point of spending money on a dedicated server and buying a 60GB SSD ..? Especially when it's not Samsung or Intel..

It's better just to get a VMWare, KVM, or Xen VPS.

I'm just going to put this here:

The Dual L5420 (35/month) and then just get the SSD drive for 20 dollars more.  CPU isn't over 3 GHz but should be perfectly fine.  Comes down to 55 dollars a month.

Their datacenter is East Coast though.  I can't guarantee you that their network is great (when I had a server with them their network was sub par in my books but KuJoe seems to absolutely love their network, so to each their own.

Because OP needs fast CPU, good throughput and that's about it.  He's not storing masses of data or anything.

But, in all fairness, I raise this point all the time about dual quad offers with a tiny single 500GB drive :)  I am a data horder and forget that many folks aren't ;)

I think the single core 3Ghz is the deal breaker but hope someone proves me wrong. Otherwise, hit up quickpacket and see what they've got in stock.

Thanks for the other offers/poking around for me guys, keep them coming if you don't mind.

While I appreciate the slightly-over-budget-similar-plans, I am still not really looking to go over budget.

Some of you from the IRC channels may have noticed I've been searching for days. Doesn't hurt to look around. :)

I'm super duper picky. buffalooed and Pete M. have my train of thought down.

Jarland recommended QPS/Quickpacket.  He had dual quads at $49 not so long ago.   Definitely a good place to consider.
