    I am looking at upgrading my server from a old useless machine. The old machine is 447MHz and 1.75GB RAM. Plugins i currently use: AutoHelp Help HeroicDeath Regios WorldEdit. Plugins I want to use: Multiverse(all 3) NoCheat PermissionsBukkit (&SuperpermsBridge) Spout NoCheat. I want to be ale to have 6 players at a time. I have two options for another server. One is 1.67GHz and 2GB RAM other is dual code 1.4GHz/core 4GB RAM. Os is gentoo linux. Gentoo linux is the fastest os ever. That means less than 50MB RAM overhead. Which computer should I use? Also, would you recommend plugins such as NoLagg and Ptweaks for me?

    if this is the wrong place, please tell me or if your a mod, move it :D.

    48 core, 128GB DDR3 1600Mhz RAM server with over 150GHz of proccesing power... running CentOS. that's what you should use :)

    P.S. 1.4ghz with the 4GB you need RAM more than CPU

    Gentoo linux builds EVERYTHING from source so its like 500X more optimized...

    Lol, well It was more jokingly, but then I decided to be a tad more serious and say CentOS instead of Vista

    LOL, I knew those where a joke, but just wanted to tell you that gentoo is more optimized.

    EDIT: BTW, is the extra RAM worth $200 more, bcuz thats what I'd be paying for it...

    oohhh lol sorry, me feels dumb now. The an example of the flags I use:
    -Xmx1024M -Xms100M -server -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -XX:+CMSParallelRemarkEnabled -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:ParallelGCThreads=4 -XX:SurvivorRatio=19 -XX:TargetSurvivorRatio=90 -XX:MaxGCPauseMillis=500
    although you may not want the -XX:parallelGCThreads=4 flag because its saying to use 4 threads for garbage collection, or 4 cores
