Hi All 😄

I run a VMware server using my old computer hardware (AMD FX 6300) and I'd like to upgrade it as I'm now running a Plex server on it which is using up a lot of resources and meaning I can't run my lab alongside it. My personal PC is running a i7 7700K and my first thought was maybe get myself a i9 9900K and put the i7 in my server but an i9 would be massively overkill and probably not worth it, it may be better suited in server but again that seems expensive but the thread count would be nice.

Basically I was just looking for some input on recommended CPUs, I could look at server CPUs like Xeons but I'm not really sure which ones would be best and the motherboard would need to fit a Fractal Define R4 case and I havent really looked into the new AMD CPUs so not sure if they would be a better option.

Anyways thanks for anyone that takes the time to read and suggest something!
