4x Xeon E7-8837

XR6
 Share

I've found a lot of 8 Xeon E7-8837 CPUs for sale on eBay. They're £72. 

I found a 4-socket motherboard from a Dell PowerEdge R810 for £99. 

How much gaming performance will I get out of 4 E7-8837s?

I'll be using a 980 Ti or 1070 FE.

Thanks :)

Not much. You're limited by an old architecture, lower bandwidth between the cpus, lower bandwidth pcie, but for heavy workloads like blender it should work pretty good

Alright, thanks for the replies :)

Also, what CPU/architecture would you recommend? I'm looking for 650 GBP max for the whole system in terms of budget.

Also, is the GPU included in the 650gbp?

Ohh, sorry about that. I forgot to quote.

The GPU is included however the 650 is an estimate. The motherboard/CPU/RAM budget is about 250 which leaves me 250 for a GPU, 50 for a case and 100 for a PSU. I've already got cooling and storage.

Anything older than Sandy Bridge you should stay away from. I don't know why you are chasing dual+ socket configurations.

Because the CPUs are cheap and dual+ socket boards are the most common boards here.

Don't go past dual socket if you absolutely have to. The latency and memory controller bonanza isn't worth it. I'd be surprised if you couldn't find an old 2600. Minimum i'd say is anything Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz or higher.

I've found an E7-8891 v2 and a bunch of older X79/X99 boards and CPUs for sale that fit my budget.

Would you suggest the 8891 v2? (I've not found out what board it supports so that's not my first option atm)

Edit: It only supports C602 (which costs a lot here!) so I'll go for X79/X99 instead.

8891 does not use a compatible socket. 2011 has 3 different styles.

I'll just do X79/X99 (whichever is cheaper because prices change a lot). 

Thanks for your help :)

i used to run a X79 system beofre i got Threadripper.

i can highly recommend getting a E5 2690 or something simmilar if you just want to game.

should still be cheaper than a 4930K/4960X and will actually perform really well!
