768mb ram dimm pc133

Inet connection 10mbit upstream and downstream

Obviously the connection is not a problem, the problem is cpu.
Running on win 2000.

Is linux better performant?

    Start @ 22 slots and work your way up.

    What OS? Linux? Windows Server? Windows? XP?
    And it will also depend on what you have installed on it. (adminmod, amx, metamod, serverops, etc.)

    1000GB? I think you mean 1000MB
    The most you can get right now is a 3Gb Pipe.

    Anyway with a 100MBit Pipe, You can have anywhere from 2 - 32. There really is no limit. With that setup / connection. But 32 Player NS isn't worth it. Atleast not in 2.01. In 3.0 NS:C Go for it. But it takes to long for 2.01 RES with 32 players.

    /me would love a 32 player NS:C

    Also, Nester, at the moment Linux is rather unstable with Steam. Linux not recommended,

    My 12 slot HLDS Bot Combat Server is running on a United Kingdom 256kb/1Mb ADSL Pipe, I've got sv_maxrate set to 1800.
    The server is a measly AMD 1.8Gb Athlon with 1.5Gb RAM and Striped disks.

    With 2 Bots and 10 players the server peaks CPU at about 50%. Players with pings over 190 (Normally West Coast Stateside users) suffer lag occassionally, but thats normally when theres a lot of voice comms going on, and I also work from home using the internet heavily with VPN and large pdf downloads...

    All in all as the majority of the network traffic is going out on the 256kb uplink portion it amazes me in reality how little bandwidth is actually being used.

    In the UK 100Mb would probably belong to a ISP with 256k/2Mb being the normal max link for home users on ADSL at an average cost of £100 per month and the new SDSL 2MB/2Mb and its 1mile from the exchange limitation weighing in at £150+ per month....

    1000Mb or Gb - sigh, dribble etc <!--emo&;)--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    The 1000gb he's referring to is the amount of data transfer, not the actual speed of the connection.
