Of course it depends on your apps, but unless you're doing some HUGE number=
 of connections, or your apps are .... "not good", this will be MORE than e=
nough RAM and CPU.

Yes, generally speaking "more" of something is always better, in fact our g=
overnment seems to think more debt is better than less.  However, if you're=
 web apps only need xGB of RAM and y MIPS; what benefit is it to have n * x=
 RAM and n * y MIPS?

Maybe turn this into a virtual host and make some use of that hardware, or =
just be happy using it at 5% capacity.

I just saw this box that is being promoted as a gaming machine at a=20=20
great price and am considering it as a web-server.

In addition to having no information on the CPU as a server lack of=20=20
comfort with 6 cores and memory 8GB of memory that I am having a=20=20
problem with.  I am not a gamer but I have always assumed that a=20=20
gaming machine needs the most aggressive hardware.  I have also seen=20=20
this processor with 12 GB rather than 8 which, in my ignorance sounds=20=20

Any opinions and guidance are appreciated.



I will be running 9.0 on this as I am already doing on one of my web-server=
