Default Making A Server

ok guys long time no see right? anyway i was missing you guys so im back to ask a question. i want to make a server for my stepbro and I and a few of my friends to play CSS on. thats all this server would be used for is counter strike source. and before you ask no we cannot lan or anything like that. thats why i would need this so they could add my ip to their fav list and join. i only want to have about 16 people in max. and i'd like it if it didnt lag but i also dont want to spend a shit load of money on it either since im the only one with the cash to build this. so if you guys could tell me what i'd need to have a server that didnt lag all the time, although every so often is fine, and how to set it up that'd be great

I've never really understood having your own server, so you buy the actual piece of equipment, like you just posted, but do just hook that up to your internet connection or what?

Know what Hamachi is?
Its a program that creates a virtual network connection with computers not on an existing network.
Me and friends play LAN games all the time, Hamachi lets us join LAN games on PC games that support network games. Its very useful.

Give it a try, instead of making a server.
