Which CPU to Choose?

Hi all,

I currently have 2 different choices hardware wise…I have a i7-4770k and I also have a i5-8500. Can I get some input as to which CPU to use?

My Unraid Box will be used for a VM or 2 – Minecraft Server – Plex Server – And that’s about it…plus or minus some extra dockers to tinker with.

Thank you in advance!

If you plan to do any transcoding with Plex, the i5-8500 is the way to go.

The i5 unless you really really want those extra two threads.
