Also, should i do Ubuntu or windows 10? I’m very used to windows and know how to tear down the walls on the windows OS, Ubuntu would be lighter weight, but windows is more functional and OS compatibility friendly. Is this a good build for the price? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/kFMW3t

Well, it depends on your use case. Ask yourself questions like:

  • Is is a LAN-exclusive server, or is it internet facing?

  • Is it just a server, or are you going to play games on it as well? (and if so, what games?)

  • How segmented and secure is the network and what security measures are you taking?

Windows 10 could be a security nightmare, depending on your setup and your proficiency with info sec principles and practices.

I would by default suggest Ubuntu Server (or a BSD variant) over Windows 10 for a server, but if you're planning on running an internet facing server in your house and you have no idea what you're doing, it would be better to rent hosting instead.

Do note that I don't know if I've ever seen someone on this site actually think through what it takes to properly run a server. Most people seem to just think "I'll just download the server jar and port my router and everything will be perfect." It's not that easy to do properly, and unless you're going to do it properly, you shouldn't do it.
