MessageWe run 4-5 BF servers totaling 100-120 players slots on dual xeon 2.8 36gb 10k rpm scsi boxes.  Runs fine.

As far as multiple games per machine, thats also possible.

Give me an idea of what you are planning on running and i'll give you my best guess at the hardware you'll need.

  I'm a BF&DC server noob (been mess'n around for couple months now).  I am interested in building a higher end server but would like to know what I can *reallistically* expect from it.  So here's the Questions:

  1) How many *Software/game-servers* can u run on a *SEVER/Box* (asuming high end hardware/CPU/RAM) I mean what is your experience -- I've read in the manual - the recommendations (its like 1 instance) - but I know others run multiple BF servers. So what are you guys capable of?  What are you getting out of your hardware?

  2) Do any of you have any experience in runing *multiple games* on your *box* - what i mean is: have any of u run UT/COD/and BF on the same box?
