Looking to build a 12 peaple server.

My equiment as of now for a dedicated server is

mobo asus a7n8x

Depends on what kind of pings you are used to.
You want people pinging around 50-100 you will need a T-1 line for that many players.

Well i want a nice 50-100 ping dedicated server. however i could only run it off my cable 300kupload

It will only be running duel fighting. No force powers except for me and friend and only saber battles plus that aminfo ****

Is 12 peaple more then what 300k upload could do ?

Assuming that you're not using up any bandwidth by the regular home use of youre cable modem 300000 / 12 = 25000 or 25 kbit for every user that connects. 25 kbit = 3.125 kB (kilobytes) per person, assuming the server is full. Your client ping times won't be rosy sweet, but it will function.

Most servers use atleast 7000 cps per client which equals out to 7k. 300k upload like you have equals out to 30K. Divide it by 7 you get 4+. So you could run a 4 person duel server with no problem. 12 people duel servers suck anyways because of the long wait time. Ideal duel servers are 6-8 people max. You might be able to fudge a 6 person server with max cps set to 5000 but there'll be some lag sometime.
