Your total control and such. I would feel much better to own a server and have it in my possesion then just be renting one. Wouldnt you?

Then again alot of people dont do this because of the costs.

i3 540 @ 3066 MHZ
4GB DDR3 1600 1T 9-9-9-28
2x 750GB
HD 5750 @ 850/2400
Thermaltake 630W
Antec Lanboy Air

When you say a "10mb connection", I am assuming that is your downstream speed which dosn't mean jack for servers. It's the upstream speed that counts and unless you have fiber I don't think you will be getting anywhere near 10mb.

Run this speed test and post back your upload speed:

If your only getting like 128-512kbps upload speed than it would be totally pointless to build a fancy server PC.

so, umm, err yeah
