Ive already posted this in the gaming thread, but its different/important enough to merit its own thread, i think.

Im looking to buy a dedicated gaming server, probably for TF2, however I'm not sure exactly where to start. Obviously I want the cheapest price possible, and was wondering if anyone has any experience in this matter?

I live in western Europe, im not sure how much distance would affect the lag.

any help would be much appreciated.
