ChocolateDough Posted March 27, 2018 Share Posted March 27, 2018 I'm building a dedicated box, will have plenty of RAM (64GB) and an SSD, "1gbps" FIOS, will have a modded and a vanilla server, botman for both, and I'm really just down to what CPUs to get. I've got a line on some good used Xeons, and just was interested in thoughts on staying with the cheapest option vs. springing for the more expensive ones: Dual E5-2665: 2.4/3.1 GHz, 8/16 Cores/Threads, 20 MB L3 Dual E5-2670 (+$50 total): 2.6/3.3 GHz, 8/16 Cores/Threads, 20 MB L3 Dual E5-2680v2 (+$280 total): 2.8/3.6 GHz, 10/20 Cores/Threads, 25 MB L3 So I guess: Would you spend the extra $50 to bump up to the 2670?Would you spend the extra $280 to jump up to the 2680v2? I know GHz is a big deal for running dedicated as well...would you scrap the whole Xeon idea and go the route of a fast i7 8700k instead? Pros: Faster clock Cons: 1 cpu vs 2 cpu, only 6/12 Cores/Threads, less cache Thanks in advance...just trying to work out my options. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
