    Are they managed or unmanaged?

    It's quite an old processor, but that still isn't a terrible price.

    It's semi-managed

    If you don't mind spending a little more ($119) you can get

    Self-Managed Dedicated Servers - Unmanaged - Intel Xeon E3-1240v2 Quad Core w/ HT
    2 1TB SATA Hard Drive
    32GB DDR3 RAM
    5 IPv4 Addresses
    10TB Bandwidth - Gigabit Port
    Software RAID 1

    I found that at Hudson Valley Host (you will need to modify from the defaults), and from what I have read they are a decent hosting provider. If I wasn't already getting an L5520 from ServerComplete (with similar specs) for $75 I would probably go with them.

    That looks pretty good but I can't spend that much. Frankly I'm ok on my current VPS but I am thinking of the future and putting several sites on it. Then I'll probably give my VPS to my kids for a minecraft server. I'm not giving that VPS up for $55 a year.

    You should have been looking earlier. From ServerComplete you could have gotten an L5520 with 24GB and 2 1TB drives for $65 (for life) and then for another $10 30TB on a 1 GigaBit port. ;)
    I grabbed two of them (one with 2 1 TB drives, the other with 2 128GB 840 Pro SSD's) for less than what a lot of people are paying for just one newer E3/E5 series server (granted they get a faster processor with better energy consumption - but honestly for most a 2.66Ghz will work and THEY pay for the power consumption!). I was about to grab a third one - but they sold out. :cry:

    I'm thinking about moving my VPS to a minecraft server - but don't know anything about it. Is it a popular game (I'm an Xbox 360 freak myself)?

    That's about right for me. A day late and a dollar short. lol

    I wasn't looking for a server until I noticed the deal offer in a techs signature when emailing back and forth with my host about a kernel upgrade. So asked and that's where I am at.

    There are automated scripts to install a minecraft server. It's big with the kids. To me it just looks old but they call it retro. lol I think there is a virtualmin add-on for it so I will just click the button and there it will be. I told them they and their friends will have to buy a domain and pay for xenforo if they want forums. :D

    Also only the pc version supports external servers.

    Well I asked and they will give me a 10% discount for paying for a year in advance. So it's now $63 a month. Good deal I think.

    hetzner connection sucks, just saying.
    I get like 300+ms at random times to them.
    And once they replaced a dieing hdd of my server with a other dead hdd.
    My server was down for like a week for that.
