I use this server as a small business server with Ubuntu Server 13.10. This can host Git. A lot of games have Linux/ Ubuntu dedicated servers even if they don't have linux game clients available as for for performance suggest trawling the web for specific requirements.

Hi Yes if you are using a windows based operating system, this micro server is like a normal computer with server grade components. For info I'm running windows 8 on my server and plex media server on top of that, I upgraded the ram to 6gb as 2gb is a little sluggish for any OS these days.

I purchased this card for mine: Sapphire 11166-02-20R HD 5450 1GB DDR3 PCIE HDMI Graphics Card, inexpensive and does the job for me. I only use it as a media server rather than a desktop / gaming machine.

Not sure what you mean by hard drive encryption? Do you mean using it with a encrypted os hard drive or using it to encrypt data on to another hard drive? The CPU is not great by today's standards but the whole package is fantastic. Sub £160 for somthing that can host 10 vms and 12tb+ of storage is amazing.

Hello, Thanks for your question. Finding RAM (ECC RAM in particular) can be a little fiddly for these. Know this as I'd bought RAM that fitted into the slots with no issues but was buffered RAM only to find these do not work with buffered RAM again despite fitting into the slots with no problems. Anyway ASIN B002LBCUPO…
Hello, Thanks for your question. Finding RAM (ECC RAM in particular) can be a little fiddly for these. Know this as I'd bought RAM that fitted into the slots with no issues but was buffered RAM only to find these do not work with buffered RAM again despite fitting into the slots with no problems. Anyway ASIN B002LBCUPO is a Kingston 4GB DDR3 ECC RAM module that is guaranteed 100% compatible. Other modules are available of course and you don't necessarily need to buy ECC RAM but as this is a server I'm of the opinion that ECC RAM should really be fitted (the originally installed 2GB RAM more than likely is ECC RAM). Hope that is of some help.

Ubuntu 13.10 works perfectly (half a year uptime so far), so I would be shocked if the latest Debian Stable release didn't work. It doesn't have a DVD drive, so I installed using a USB stick. Use LinuxLive USB Creator to do this and you'll have no problems.
