7600 and 7700 (non K) for two rigs

Ok so i have two machines with the same Gigabyte H270 mb now. 

 

One is a file server but I would like to be able to have it do more, at the moment it is running a Pentium G3930 though which can barely run Windows 10.

 

The other rig is going to be my TV gaming / emulators / HTPC and i just picked up an i5 7600 for $140 for it, but have an offer for an i7 7700 for $180.

 

If i pick up the i7, would it make the most sense to put that in the server pc since the other one is only for games?

Neither of those applications require the power of either of those CPUs.

 

That said, if you actually have an offer for the 7700 at 180, you should immediately buy it. That's about $50 cheaper than the average ebay sold price.

 

I would put the 7700 in the gaming pc. File servers really... really don't need decent CPUs.) 

 

(The 7600 and 7700 are technically identical... it's just that hyperthreading is disabled on the 7600, and the 7700 may be "binned" higher (meaning the die turned out better.) MAY have been binned.

Thanks, yeah you're probably right. I may find more purposes for them both later on but for now the server is only sharing files in-home, and at some point I want to have it run a network firewall instead of my router doing that. 

 

The other PC is going to be for friends to use to game on my TV, or play emulators etc, I figured with 16gb 2666mhz DDR4, and a 1070 and either of these cpus it should be more than enough for 1080p at 60fps at high graphics settings.

Oh definitely. I game at >60 fps at 1080p on my 6700k and 1060. :)
