I want to run a Minecraft server and play on that server using the same machine, with maybe 15-20 or so friends playing on the server. I've seen other people ask this question before, but they stated that there would only be like 5-10 people on the server. My knowledge is that the more players, the more RAM and resource intensive the server is. I've provided my PC specs below. I'm wondering if my PC is powerful enough to run the server on it with everyone playing and still get decent fps (like 50+). Or if I should get a dedicated PC to run the server. Thanks in advance :-)

My Specs:

i7 6700k - OC to 4.5GHz (4c/8t)


50 - 75Mbps (Up) 10Mbps (Down) Internet Connection

MSi r7 370 Graphics



Windows 8.1 Pro


Yes, I think that your computer is powerful enough to run it all. But keep in mind that the RAM is not the only thing that is important when you are thinking about creating servers.

The processor is also important to estimate the max player count your computer can stand.
