Recommended great value dedi with HIGH cpu for encoding, ram unimportant, around 200gb HD?
Those specs will do.
I would like to spend most of the budget on processor as that is most important for encoding. Ram is insignificant, I think 2gb would be fine, HD 200 would suffice I think, maybe even 100gb.
Most dedi options seem an 'even spread' of specs across CPU/ram/HD so in such cases that is wasting money for me. Any that can be custom made to max out CPU for what I am paying with min ram and modest HDD?
As for price I am open but under $100 per month. I want to test first to see how much more productivity I get out of a dedi/better specs vs my current dual $5 per month contabos. So maybe around $50 dollar per month price tag and check the productivity increase and go from there. But would like to hear options across that price range; anything under $100 given the specs I stated.
EDIT: looking at the current HD usage of the contabo servers which have 200GB I am using less than 50% of that so probably 100gb would do fine if it meant saving a few dollars and giving more available to allot to more cpu horsepower.
