But can it run Crysis?

Rappy's spam requirements > Crysis requirements.

So yes.

Why RHEL? Save yourself some money and use CentOS if you want to use Linux. RHEL support is worthless. :)
Linux-powered is Linux-powered. (Y)

And hardware (performance!) upgrades are always a welcome investment.

But can it run Crysis?
/me points to the word "Linux"

:no:

That is great to hear that Neowin will be running even smoother in the future than it does now (if that's possible :p). Good job guys and I hope the installation goes off without a hitch.

Hows the next version of Neowin coming along?

Writing it in Lolcode seemed like a good idea.... when we started

Good news, congrats Neowin team on the Server :)

p.s. apologies for my last post I was in a hurry. Too many BBSes and IRC chat sessions in my time, you know.

No that was just the server, we already owned licenses

every RAID controller was redundant, redundant fiber controllers per link redundant fiber lines... redeundnat power supplies... costs $$$$$

I just hope the speed isn't effected like last time. The switch to make neowin "faster" last time provided unbearable lag, making it very hard to even navigate the forum topics, let alone the replies.

Good to see things going well for neowin, and I hope this makes what I believe to be a fast neowin, even faster
