Hey guys, so I'm looking to upgrade my pc on a budget. I have an i3 3220 right now and no gpu. I'm going to buy either a 1050 ti or a rx 570 4gb from the used market. I have a Gigabyte H61m-s motherboard and i would like your suggestions about the cpu upgrade. I have a choice between an i5 3470, i5 3550, and xeon E3-1240. My main usage will be gaming at 1600x900 and maybe streaming sometimes. All 3 processors are costing about the same. I need to know if they are all compatible and which one will be best for me.

Thank you.

Also could I use server ram with this setup? It's available for cheaper than desktop ram. And it's max memory capacity is 16 gb, so can i use a 1x16gb stick? Or do i have to get 2x8gb?
Thanks again.
You probably could use server memory but I would make sure it's compatible with the motherboard. As for 1x16gb or 2x8gb your better off with the 2x8gb kit as most programs/games will run slightly better in dual channel.

I'm tested low 2.0Ghz CPU with many cores and think that this is normal result -

I'm think this is normal for game, if you use 1600x900 of RX570 4Gb & Xeon. But some cores for streaming is not good ... maybe you can use GPU for this or special PCI-E cards ...
