I'm set to build a new PC in the next few weeks. This PC will be used for the following;
- Twitch/Mixer Streaming (720p60, 3000 Bitrate)
- General Use
- Hosting a 24/7 Minecraft Server
I've been debating on a CPU choice for my the build. As of now, I have a Ryzen 1700 that has served me quite well. I could carry it over from my current build, or I could pick up a brand new 3900X. I'm wondering if anyone here would have a recommendation on which path to take, keeping the 1700 or upgrading to the 3900X. The Minecraft server, although being 24/7 hosted, is only a vanilla SMP Spigot server running minimal server packs (Sethome, TPA, Dynmap are the only 3) with usually under 10 people on it, so it is, by comparison to most, a low-intensity server. I know that MC Servers are RAM eating as well, which is why I'll be using 32GB of DDR4.
Would Gaming/Streaming while hosting the Minecraft server be too much for the 1700?
