  1. Hi my brother built a server computer from scratch his plan was to rent the server but then he got busy and he couldn't continue his plan so I want to continue his plan, I don't have any experience in servers where do I start is there a website that could help me , how to make money from a server, how much a server could make, can I use the computer while it is a server,and what are the hardware requirements, the computer hardware is :

    processor: intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3970x CPU @ 3.50GHz 3.50 GHz

    installed memory (RAM): 64.0GB

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680

    motherboard: ASUSTek Computer INC RAMPAGE IV EXTREME Rev 1.xx

    internet connection about 4mb/s

    hard disk 2t

    and I have windows 10 as operating system .

    what kind of person who buy this and just leave it, that is why people need to get married so they waste their money in better things.

    anyway what do I need to add to the hardware, and how do I make it a server .
