suggest an CPU upgrade

Recommended Posts

hey guys, have an i5-8400 on a z-370 motherboard with 16gb DDR4 ram.   Run about 10 dockers, a Windows 10 VM that hosts Blue Iris for recording my video cameras, and Plex.  Just looking for a CPU upgrade as i am always running about 70 percent and sometimes max it out.   Hoping to just buy a motherboard and CPU and reuse my ram.   What is a good upgrade to give me a little headroom without using a ton more power?   Is the best bang for the buck Ryzen or Xeon?   Any help would be much appreciated.
