Home Server Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have a Home Server PC I built a little while back with a ryzen 2200g, when i built the pc the main goal was just to run plex for a few of my housemates and myself mostly locally.  It has sense grown to about 10 of my friends as well as me hosting Ark Servers , wow Servers and really any private server for a game we feel like playing. Im starting to run into bottlenecks with the lil cpu in that computer. Basically im trying to decide weather i should upgrade it to a gen 3 ryzen 5 chip or if i should upgrade my main pc to a 3rd gen ryzen 7 chip and move my 2700x into the server.  I could also buy another 2700x for one of my roommates computers and move the 2600x into the server.  Obviously any of them would give me a bit more power but my main goal is to keep my price to performance in a good place and not buy a chip im going to replace again in a few months as well as keeping my system running cool since its an always on, currently sits around 28c idle 38 90% load. What are your opinions ? (I have an unused rx 580 gpu id slot in if i replace the CPU)
