I'm trying to get a minecraft server running for my kids, and I'm running a 2200G CPU. With that CPU it keeps crapping out. Any thoughts as to what might be a reasonable upgrade?

Yea have you checked to see what is being maxed out like memory, hard drive, cpu temperature, etc... the CPU should be ok for minecraft.

It shows memory use as "250 mb" but a very low % free... I have 8GB of RAM and the task manager is showing 44% memory usage so it's not like a lot is going on.

Agreed. I would definitely troubleshoot this out before spending money. I'd start with the ram given the CPU and board being used. I had a 2200g and AB350, and ram had to be dialed in. A much newer bios than what shipped, and running the ram at under 3000 speed was necessary.
