This seems like what your looking for its for Battlefield 2
================================================== ======================
DEDICATED SERVER
================================================== ======================

We highly recommend Battlefield 2 servers are run on dedicated server platforms. Currently, the best performance is on a machine with the following specifications:

LINUX

- Minimum Specification, based on playing a 16 player game:
CPU: 1 Ghz
RAM: 256 Mb

- Recommended Specification, based on playing a 64 player game:
CPU: 3 Ghz. For AMD Athlon 64 CPU: 3500+ (2.2 Ghz)
RAM: 1 Gb

WINDOWS

- Minimum Specification, based on playing a 16 player game:
CPU: 1 Ghz
RAM: 384 Mb

- Recommended Specification, based on playing a 64 player game:
CPU: 3 Ghz. For AMD Athlon 64 CPU: 3500+ (2.2 Ghz)
RAM: 1 Gb

BANDWIDTH

- Minimum 2.5 Mbit

- Recommended 5Mbit

As always if you can increase any of the above hardware you will improve your overall gameplay experience.

FIREWALL

The use of a software firewall on the server is not recommended, as it can adversely affect server performance and the overall gameplay experience.

heres a link to where I got it http://planetbattlefield.gamespy.com...l&id=79&game=3

I think you need to do your own research. This kind of information isn't hard to find. Infact, usually you can run multiple servers on a single box (if the bandwidth and hardware allows). My team runs 2x battlefield 2 servers and 2x counter strike source servers with teamspeak and webhosting).

I believe they pay about $150 / month for it.
