AMD server. I need help!

I was wondering if this would host minecraft, garrys mod, Arma 3, Insurgency, or FTP server. Not all at once of course. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

That's about all I changed. A major performance increase without too much of a cost increase. I don't know if it'll run Arma, though. You may need a dedicated GPU for that. If you can fit it in your budget, get a 1050ti.

Thank you very much, i didn't think about how the Intel CPU's don't over heat as much.

But do you know anything about the other games i listed? Or the FTP server?

I am not honestly sure about the FTP server, but I can tell you it'll do better than that AMD processor your selected. Garry's mod should be no problem, I can't say for Insurgency, but it should extremely easily run MC, even on a server.

I meant FREENAS sorry. I had done some reading and made a new build for FREENAS i will post it soon.

Hate to burst your bubble but If you think you can pull off Insurgency and ArmA on integrated graphics...

Prepare for disappointment.

You prepare for disappointment I'm not spending money on what i don't need. Read an article. https://steamcommunity.com/app/222880/discussions/2/558746089633436678/?l=english
