NAS server to install steam games from when needed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am going to be creating a home server NAS as a steam server cache to install games from when i need them to free up space on the gaming pc when not playing them. I h ave a old pc that uses ddr3 and a 3.0ghz intel processor. Will i have any problems and can anyone help me in setting this up

I do a lot of server stuff but I've not setup a steam cache before. I saw LMG's video on it and I think they went over how to get the basic setup going but I could be wrong. It's been a while. I'll need to look it up again.

Why not just get like a 2TB drive and install them all? A steam cache doesn't really make sense when you only have 1 PC
