Yeah that still has to be fixed. I did the sponsors, mods and senior members first. You guys are next.

Re: Help FMVp buy a new server, get discounts & first dibs

i don't have the resources to donate right now, but if i did, i would. but... i wanna give some advice concerning the parts you're gonna get.

the processor's probably gonna be the biggest thing you wanna choose right and everyone's suggesting xeons and stuff, but i highly recommend getting a server based on an opteron rather than a xeon. there are benchmarks that show opterons bashing on the xeons, kinda like 3s bash on them civics.

here are some benchmarks if you wanna see...

i'm not sure if ibm sells opterons, but i'm sure hp does, and so does sun.

jus a suggestion i guess... and since you guys aren't in any rush to get a new one, then wait for them dual cores as it would be a lot more cost efficient...

Re: Help FMVp buy a new server, get discounts & first dibs

IBM does indeed.* The x326 is Opteron, the x336 is Xeon.

But yeah we're not in a rush.* Switching to SMF has thankfully lightened the load on our current server by a TON.* Eventually we'll still need a new one, but not the urgency now that there was before.

A dual core opteron server with the ability to add a 2nd proc would be perfect though, eventually.

Re: Help FMVp buy a new server, get discounts & first dibs

Yeah we upgraded the memory in our current server a while back. So far the rest of the money is just held in reserve though. Hasn't been any major need for a new server yet.
