This is for use as a friend only minecraft server, I want to say, The Motherboard is not correct, The one purchased is the M5A78L-USB3 version that can support 32GB of RAM The motherboard will come with CPU+Cooler+RAM pre-installed and was purchased off Amazon For £155+£1 P&P. We only have 16GB at the moment... they only sent half the RAM...
We already have a stack of old HDDs which will be used just for the OS which is probably going to be Ubuntu server 12.04 (LTS) The minecraft server software will be running on a RAMdisk, allowing for the whole map to be loaded in the super-fast memory that RAM provides, and will be backed up on a nightly basis to the HDDs. Me and my friends feel this was a great buy for the money, despite currently not knowing the brand of RAM but we aren't worrying. The only extra purchase apart from the mobo/cpu/ram bundle was the Xfx 450W PSU, we own old PSUs but naturally do not trust them
Currently running off a spare 1TB Samsung baracuda, will be moved to the old HDDs when my other friend gives them too me.
