Whitebox Server Build Pricing + Thoughts?


Emerald Upgrade
5 November 2016


So, I'm thinking about making a whitebox server for my gaming community. It will constantly be running:
  • 1x Garry's Mod Terrortown Server
  • 1x Garry's Mod DarkRP Server
  • 1x Garry's Mod Sandbox Server
  • 1x Rust Server
  • 2-4x Virtualized Machines for the Servers
  • 3x Webserver
My home internet will be 1Gbps Down / 50Mbps Up. What I'm trying to figure out is if that's a good pricing for what I'm running and for a server build at all, as well as if you guys know where I could get the parts for cheaper and/or equivalents for cheaper.

My HostOS will be Windows Server 2016, and I'll be running Ubuntu VMs inside for the gameservers. The HostOS will be Windows since it is easier for me to configure TCAdmin to run the gameservers and place the files for them inside of the VM Space. Or if someone knows how to help me setup TCadmin for Ubuntu based systems, let me know and it would be a godsend.
