There are desktop computers and then there are VPS Server computers but how different are they exactly. Well, any computer actually has the same basic components processor, working memory, storage etc. and you may be surprised to hear that fundamentally they're not that different with some of those components even coming off the same assembly line. But that doesn't mean that you can just grab off the shelf desktop components in like fashion yourself a server. I mean sure core i7 runs at 3.8 gigahertz and Xeon runs at 3.8 gigahertz but it costs way more. Well, sometimes there's more to it...
