Shoud i buy a good pc or is better the vps?
Hello, i want to ask here for someone who have some knowedge about this. Till now i was running my GSA on my laptop, and yes it was working fine, but it's not the best. I know that the real power will be to run it on the VPS, i have tried once but that vps was not good, i have choosed the cheapest one.
Well i want to know, will be ok if i will buy a good pc, i mean with some like 16gb of ram, and 3ghz cpu..maybe also additional ram, so to make it a bomb of 32 gb. I have think that i need it also to retouch my photos.
So the question is, rest better the VPS, or it's better this idea with a good pc?
Thanks for all the answers.
One reason people run ser on a vps is for the internet speed
Where I live, we call 6mbt fast for home internet speed
So a vps with a 100mbt connection, is the only option I have for running ser at any decent speed
If I had a similar internet connection available at home, I would use the pc option
Going by those speeds, get a windows vps
Do your research to find a reliable one
I'd say if you can get 20Mb+ on any connection, you are pretty much good to go. You'll be able to crack 100 LPM easily at that speed.
Your biggest concern will be the RAM and CPU. Just make sure you have at least 4 Mb RAM, and have a modern CPU. The CPU doesn't have to be an i7 or anything crazy, just not a Pentium if you get my drift
4 mb of ram 8-}
Pssst 4 gig of ram )
zx81 with a modern day cpu soldered in, is what Ron must be using :-B
Damn, I can't edit that post. Why do they only allow one hour to edit a post?
Well, you guys know what I meant...4GB RAM. Leave it to Lee to spot it. Arghhh.
Where abouts in the UK are you situated? I'm from London and my BT infinity speeds are roughly 70+mb download and 7+mb upload?
I'm thinking of buying another computer too,
Asus Z77 Maximus V Extreme Intel Z77 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard
Intel Core i7-3770K 3.50GHz (Ivybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor (77W) - Retail
Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB 10000RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache - OEM (WD1000DHTZ) HDD
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache - OEM (ST2000DM001) HDD
Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-19200C10 2400MHz Dual Channel Memory Kit (CMY16GX3M2A2400C10R)
Asus VN247H 24"Widescreen Super Narrow Bezel LED Monitor - Black
Aerocool GT-S Series 700w '80Plus Bronze' Modular Power Supply
Cooler Master HAF 912 Advanced Windowed Midi Tower Case - Black
My finger has been on the buy now button literally all day!
I've got a core2duo E8500 at the moment with 8G DDR2 Corsair dominator ram modules paired with the asus formula rampage mobo (best mobo I've invested in so far), I've had this machine for a couple years, bought it for gaming once apon a time!
My system gets laggy when I'm running 3 instances of senuke and 1 instance of SER at 300 threads..
What sort of machines do you two have anyways @ron @leeG and what do you think of the new spec I'm thinking of getting, input would be appreciated!
100 mbt bt line, you should fly
Sven will the source of your pay cheque for each computer you run ser on
Rule of thumb is 20mbt internet connection per copy of ser running
Good cpu for captcha solving
Don't know what you mean by "Sven will the source of your pay cheque for each computer you run ser on"
That's for me to know and you to find out! soz pal
Each copy of ser you run will need a separate licence
100 mbt home internet, 5 x machines running ser flat out
5 x copies of cb for good luck.
) where has these 5 machines appeared from? lol
Im helping you plan ahead
Be a shame with all that internet speed to to utilise it 8-}
You might need a power station in your garden in the end, but Im sure someone has an affiliate with a nuclear power station building company
Something you would not put past this lot on here
Not many clicks, but good paying when someone spends a billion
Managed to get everything including a case and some basic cooling for less than £400.
WHS 2011 is effectively Win 7 with some additional server stuff and with hindsight I'd have bought a bigger SSD as this makes WHS easier to install. Plus I'd have got better cooling (the FX8350 runs hot under load, so the CPU fan is noisy), but you could still do all that for a lot less than an i7 based system and end up with the same sort of performance.
