WOO HOO! Wow, You guys did it! We are now covered, and the brand new server is going to bring Ironworks into a new age.. er.. we'll it'll last many years and with some things I have planned for the site, I think it'll become as busy as it was during the RPG boom!

Lots of cool stuff to come!!!

Glad you made it, Z. Would've sucked to send it all back.

This was the first time I donated. I don't visit as often as I used to but this place has served me well for a while now and it was about time I gave something back.

Yeah, I would have been super depressed returning it--it took a while putting it all together, tweaking it, installing W2K, and stuff.

Thanks you! It really does mean a LOT to me, getting the support when I need it. We REALLY needed a new server, I mean, we were running on a backup board from like 2002 I think, with 512mb ram! Now, we're rocking 4 gigs of fast Gskill ram, a superfast motherboard and CPU. (Graphics card is cheap, as a server doesn't need anymore)

I feel like I have so much room to grow now.. a big room to build loads of new things for the Forum! It's a GREAT feeling! Choc sleeps near it for heat I guess--guarding it... hehe..

Z, great choice on RAM! G.Skill is a Tier 1 memory maker. The next build I do will be using either their product or Kingston's Hyper X memory.

If you don't mind me asking, what motherboard and cpu did you go with?

I went with the second best MB--didn't need a beast SLI board for the server, but most good motherboards have SLI tech now)

EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
(The only sucky thing is NO floppy controller on board, so installing XP or W2K3, I had to buy a damn USB floppy drive--for raid drivers... ugh the ONLY time I ever use floppy too)

And an overclocker king--and priced well: Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz
Running it at 3.2Ghz on AIR and temps are only 2c above normal idle on a stock cpu!

I decided on this board because of the triple channel memory for the server. I have 4 gig in now, but as soon as I can afford it, I'll get 2 more gig to make use of 3 channels.. 6 gigs (board has 6 ram ports) can hold a total of 12gig!

I got this as the cheap server video card:
EVGA GeForce 7200GS 512MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16

lol... $32! I remember a voodoo 4 MEGABYTE card being $349! hehe... I was surprised at the 512 ram.. not bad! Memory IS cheap as heck these days...

A few years ago, I also used pqi Ram.. very fast!
