    Ok, so I'm going to start a server but I'm going to build the tower.
    I want 50 - 80 players.

    dual-core i3 processor
    2GB of ddr3
    450 GB harddrive

    what do i need to upgrade on or is this good for running a dedicated server for 50 - 80 players ?

    also, how can i run just bukkit on my computer ?
    i will be using ubuntu desktop or ubuntu server (because i dont know the difference)

    2 gigs ram only? Are you kidding??? My server has quad core i7 @2.2ghz and 8 gigs ddr3 ram for 30 have to upgrade everything.

    quad core at least
    50 players will take about 4gb of ddr3
    and the speed of your hardrive is what matters 7200 is pretty good

    @Jesseg2, bukkit uses a single core now, but is looking to go multi-threaded in the future

    also the amount of memory really depends on what plugins you are running (and how many), though i would upgrade the memory (which luckily is cheap, $10/Gig)

    what is the internet connection upload, as to have 50-80 people you will need one hell of a connection (10-15Mbps upload)

    If I run a speed test on my family desktop I get
    3MB up
    35MB down

    Ok this Is all making more since now...
    So, quad-core i5
    6GB ddr3
    7200 harddrive

    Good now ?
    I'm going way past my budget but...

    well with the internet speed (upload) you are going to max around 24-30 people on the server as each person uses about 125 Kbps upload

    Oh ok, I guess that will do...
    Ok now on the processors,
    What Is better
    Intel i5 processor quad-core at 3.2Ghz (3.7 turbo)
    Intel xeon quad-core server processor at 2.4Ghz
    ? Please help...

    the i5 because it is faster, no need for server style equipment for this (i use a desktop class Athlon II X2)
