What sort of bandwidth are we talking about being included in the price
of $175/mo? I'm part of a gaming clan, and we run stats for 6 source
engine games on our web VPS, and they are always pissed at us for eating
tons of CPU. I'd have to get in contact with our founder or the SQL guy
(both have root access to the VPS, which I don't) to figure out how much
bandwidth we use in a month, but the extra $80/mo might be worth the CPU
we would be able to use on a dedicated box.
