What is a good processor to use to build a server? 

by on May 30, 2013

Q: I currentley have an i7 960 I was toying with the idea of building a server
Just because I want to know how they operate (ui etc). I’m wondering what would be a more capable server CPU
A xeon e3 1270 v2 or the i7960
The reason I ask is because if they are close in performance as a windows server then ill just use my i7 and by a more recent model. Thankyou
