    Here are some things..

    Download Speed: 43.21 MBPs
    Upload Speed: 14.41 MBPs
    RAM Deticated To Server: 4 GB

    So... based on this, whats an estimated amount of players my server should be able to hold? What should I make the Maximum amount of players basically?

    Whats your processor?

    AMD Phenom 9500 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) ~2.2 GHz

    I would say around 20-25 people at most but it also depends on your plugins.

    I also seem to be getting the error in the CMD like once every 2 seconds : "[WARNING]: Can't keep up! Did the system time change, or is the server overloaded?"

    Is there something wrong with the server or something?

    It just means the server is having a hard time running.

    oh i thought your processor speed was 2.6 GHz

    and your upload speed is a bit low.
    i would probably lower the max player to 20 at most before it starts getting laggy.

    I JUST upgraded to Comcast's FASTEST internet they told me they have available, is there another reason my upload speed may be low..?

    People that live across the world will have lagg and people closer to you shouldnt have any unless theres alot of people on the server.

    Comcast is a great provider (my provider as well). I don't know why they are saying your upload speed is slow (its not at all). I host a home run server with 1.5gb RAM 23plugins and 12slot with no lag so you'll be fine

    Comcast has fairly shitty peering, and that CPU is weak, but overall you should be fine for 40 players.

    How is much is a Good CPU? I have upgrades almost everything inside my Pc Since I bought it off ebay, including this like $200 Graphics card, a new main fan, RAM, etc..

    So.. how much is a good CPU? By good I mean better than mine of course, but not like the best of the best. Recommend a good one? Thanks!

    Any new Intel CPU that is either Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge. AMD is just too weak core per core.

    If you want a cheap, yet good one, get a Core i3 2130.

    That's false information, if I have ever seen it before. You can easily host 30 people and not hit 14 megabit/s. The most I have seen used is about 7-9 megabit/s for 50 players...
