Dedicated Game Server - CPU Recommendation
Currently Running i3-6100 on an Asus Z290
I am looking to transform my home Media Server into a dedicated game server for Space Engineers and games like that. SE is CPU and RAM heavy like Minecraft and you don't need a video card to run it.
While I can probably get by with the 6100 and 8gb of 2666mhz ddr4 ram. I am thinking of using my upgrade path of the 6000 and 7000 series i5/i7s to increase performance and maybe even pop in 16gb of 3200mhz ram.
I have a guy locally willing to sell me a i5-6600k for $100, which I a pretty sweet deal. I also have a $180 option for a i7-6700k which is an ok deal as it can be had for $200 on ebay. Nothing yet on 7000 series chips.
I am wondering if the 6600k will be enough or if I am selling myself short. Don't want to upgrade again, but don't ahve a ton of money to throw around, trying to do it on a budget.
