Minimum specs for server

I’m currently running a server on the same machine that I run the game on. It gets between 8-10 players now, but I’m worried about performance issues going forward. I’d also like to be able to record my games, but currently that brings everything to a grinding halt.

Thus, I’d like to run a dedicated server, but the only machine I have is an midrange i5 with 8GB of RAM from 2012.

Is it practical to run a server on this machine, or do I need more CPU grunt and RAM to do so?
Second question: I assume I need GTA installed on the server machine, too?

Thanks for your help.

GTA V version? Steam edition
Up to date? Yes
Legit or Pirate copy? Legit

i5 with 8GB ram will be fine to host a server off of most likely. Perhaps more ram would be ideal but 8gb should be ok. You’ll just need to ensure that the PC has a constant network connection and power. Make sure it doesn’t go to sleep etc… You could even install Windows Server 2012 on there so you don’t have the useless other Windows programs wasting space and resources.

You do not need to install GTA/FiveM on the dedicated pc, you’ll just have to move all your server files onto it and run the start.bat file as normal.

That’s awesome, I am gonna give it a shot. Thanks for your help!
