    Okay, I'm looking at setting up a server or two. I did this years ago, but things change. So to get the most out of my money, and to make sure it's a server that'll provide what we need in terms of speed and a decent FPS... I'm asking you guys.

    Any suggestions?

    A lot of people will probably say Gameservers.com, but personally I've found Wolfservers to have amazing personalized support and quality hardware. They're not the cheapest of them, about $1.99 a slot for TF2, but I would recommend them to anyone. I've been hosting since the beta and haven't had a single outage or any downtime.

    There are a lot of good GSPs (game server providers) out there though!

    I liked WOLF a lot for BF2142. Seemed to be the ONLY stable servers for that game.

    However, for my first TF2 server I'll be trying Gameservers since they are highly recommended by more than a handful of people. I'll eventually be trying several hosts, and running several servers, so WOLFServers is on the top of my list. Then I'll purchase a dedicated server early next year from the host I feel is the best and move all the servers to that box.

    So, game on. :)

    Are you looking for a basic server to load up yourself or do you want a game host preloaded with games and a GSP? If its just a plain host I can give you a number of different options on both linux and windows platforms from 49$ to 400$ a month.
