I have the following systems I would like to know if it's better to merge both of them in one system or sell one or both of them to get a AMD Ryzen or Intel system that will have more CPU cores
I will be using the system with 3 VMS one for me for gaming with passthrough 1070 GTX and 2 VMs is for normal desktop use with passthrough 710 GT one i have now and will get soon.
All of the 3 Vms will be on most of the time, plus I’m trying to add mac os vm for testing.
So that means I would need 3 graphics cards to be in the system plus the graphics card for the unraid system since AMD Ryzen don’t have built in GPU.
also i have 8 Dockers running
and plex Docker transcending for users 3 but not all the time.
Here are the two systems that I have already.
M/B: MSI - H97M-G43(MS-7924)
CPU: Intel Core i5-4590
Memory: 16 GB (2*8)
Hard Drives: 5 + 1 SDD
graphics card:710 GT
Case: Fractal design node 804
M/B: Asus MAXIMUS VII HERO
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K
Memory: 16 GB (4*4)
Hard Drives: 1 + 1 SDD
graphics card:1070 GTX
Case: Fractal design R5
is it worth it to merge one of the systems together or to sell both of them and get a more powerful system I have been using Unraid for more than 1 year and it's been great I would like to advance what I am doing with it.
