Requirements for a decent rig?

hd speed
cpu

Cable Speed?

OS to run?
Linux or Windows 2008 core or something else

What's entailed in setting it up to run the game like CS or L4D?

Is this so you can play on a LAN or over the internet?

If it is over the internet I suggest you be careful because your ISP more than likely doesn't allow you to do this, and if they catch you using a lot of bandwidth they could shut your service off.

I have heard that serverpoint.com has well-trained technical support which is always ready to explain the customers everything they need to know. I am sure that their dedicated servers meet your requirements and budget. They also offer the second month free.

As you may know, there are many companies in the hosting services market, but not all of them are trustworthy. I highly recommend you to contact support staff of the company you are going to host your game and ask them. As a matter of fact, have a look at ncisp.net dedicated server offers and if you don't know what configuration to choose, their skillful staff will find the most suitable for your game.
