    Intel Xeon E3 1240v5 16GB Rapid Deploy Quad Core Dedicated Server

    Any thoughts on this for hosting just a few sites. I have a lot of attachments stored on server 250GB, was thinking they could exist on the SATA drive.
    Sites get about 5k a day. Running Xenforo and there is a wordpress.
    Would 16GB ram be sufficient?


    Also important, is this a decent price for the specs?

    thanks

    Price for specs is very good. Just need to decided if it's what you require for now and in the future. That you're budget ? Probably be better with 2x 512GB SSD raid 1 if you can afford it.

    Yea storage is my big thing. Having an SSD vs SATA to server the attachments is better for file access?

    Is 16GB of ram decent for just hosting a couple sites. Does extra ram do me any good. The current server I have has 32GB but there is so much free.

    You'd have to make that decision yourself. But SSD is better than SATA

    Look for OVH for almost the same price and better specs.

    If you want a US-based server, they are not a good choice.
