Multiple Head Gaming Server-Spec Station
Two Heads, One CPU was good
Seven gaming systems, one tower was very good
The question people should be asking:
How Extreme Can This System Go?
Linus, from Linus Media Group, is the inspiration of this article.
I decided we would need to keep a few of the system parts the same.
LimeTech Server - this is the virtual environment operating system Linus has been raving about over the last quarter of 2015
Intel Xeon processors - Intel's server processors are an expensive option for many gamers, but it is a serious requirement for what we are suggesting
Kingston 32 GB ECC DDR4 RAM modules - serious gamers are migrating to DDR4 for the vast increase bandwidth it offers
Flash drives - Linus used Kingston 1 TB (1000 GB) SSDs utilising the SATA 3 bus, but we will go for something a little more extreme
