So I was thinking, since I now have a i3 stop gap Rig which shall be relegated to do HTPC duties sooner or later, I need new a Rig. I think it will be wise for me to assemble 3 rigs at new place. 1. Current i3 setup as HTPC, for Netflix and Movies and all such mundane stuff. 2. A New Intel Haswell 4th Gen DC i5 4690K setup as main Rig for gaming. 3. A Server with a Octa Core FX 8320/8350 to serve duties of Programming Rig and VM rig. I plan to run like 7-8 VMs at one time, so thinking I should perhaps get a 8 Core processor. What do you guys suggest. For all this I have close to 1500$. Or should I just combine 2 and 3?
