i get away with 30 players on a athlong 2400+ with 256meg ram on windows
with me playing so i dunno what ur on about
but those systems would handle anything u wanna do including multiple server
at the moment i have a 1.4ghz thunderbird with 256 meg ram for my linux ded
and it handles 30 without a sweat as well
