RAM requirements...


New Member
Looking for opinions here... for a pretty small (yeah for niche marketing!) paid host running on 2 400MHZ dedicated servers on some high speed network or other, what's the minimum amount of RAM that will still render the server useable and pretty fast?

Well I would say the minimum would be 128mb of ram but you would be alot better off with 256mb, 512mb, or 1 GB of ram.

Any decent server would have 256 if you'd even think about using it for hosting. It's so cheap now that I'd suggest 512.

The voice of reason. This is a good amount to start out at. More the better of course...
