    Budget-ish Server Build

    Looks promising, thank you!

    Budget-ish Server Build

    My current build consists of the following: - Single Intel Xeon E5-1650 v2 (6 cores, 12 threads) @ 3.20 GHz - 64GB of DDR3 ECC RAM - 240GB Samsung SSD - 3TB Seagate IronWolf NAS HDD Although I have upgraded it quite a bit, my main problem is that this server was bought and not built. Storage is not a problem for me, but RAM and CPU processing power are. My current server can support a maximum of 64GB of RAM, which I would like more of for more virtualization. I currently have the second strongest CPU available for the system, which is not much different than the strongest available (Intel Xeon E5-2687W) aside from 2 more cores and 4 more threads than my current CPU. This is why I am thinking about building a system.

    Budget-ish Server Build

    Hey all! I've made a little bit of spending cash and would like to a spend maximum of around $900 CAD (Canadian Dollars) on a budget-ish server build for virtualization. I currently already have a virtualization server running VMware ESXi 6.7 that hosts a couple of VMs on it already, and thought I should build another one for hosting more VMs. Any recommended specifications would be greatly appreciated!

    Is it foolish to try without cooling

    I hope you get that discount my friend! Good luck with your build!

    Is it foolish to try without cooling

    I guess I should've mentioned that I thought you could do this because my friend told me he did it successfully. Damn. I guess just don't try it.

    I mean it shouldn't be a problem if all you're doing is testing to see if it posts. But, if you plan to use it for an extended period of time without a cooler (ie. 5 minutes or more) that's a no go.

    CPU vs GPU rendering. What is better?

    (Almost) Always a GPU. A GPU will perform rendering at a very fast and efficient speed. Especially if it is a 1060 or above (The 900 series works too, but 1060s and above is where its at). I also noticed you want to do 1080p 60fps. In my opinion, you might want to aim for at least a 1060 6GB OC edition, as it has double the GDDR5 memory (So it can be used for more "intensive purposes", such as rendering in this case).
