So I upgraded my PC a bit last year which ended up in my having 2 now since I went for an AMD and I have some spare cabinets and RAMs. Well, thing is, my other machine has these specs:

Motherboard: MSI H110M PRO-VH PLUS
Processor: Intel Pentium G4560 3.50 GHz
Cabinet: Sentey Slim SS1-2426
Hard Drive: I think it is a Seagate 1TB 
RAM Memory: Kingston Fury Beast DDR4 KF432C16BB/8 

I would like to run any of the following, multiple if possible:

  • A Lemmy instance
  • A private tracker
  • A Matrix instance

So what do you say? Is it good enough for any of this shit or is it a piece of junk? I’ve been using it to play video games but with another 8gb of ram and it worked okay-ish.

I agree with Salamander.

I would care about PostgreSQL and suggest tuning it. As minimum, increasing shared memory to 512 MB.

What do you mean by shared memory? I’m completely new to self hosting, this would be my first attempt.

Can be configured in the main PostgreSQL configuration file. It has a default value that is too small for basic use case even.
