    Hello everyone ,

    I want to install a session of ESXI 6.0 on a physical machine where i want to create more virtual machines(win10guests) (around 10 x 6 GB ram each ).
    On those machines i will run tomcat apache instances .
    Since there is always a cost issue , i found 2 systems that i am thinking for this.
    The price for this is quite similar but i am not sure what do do regarding the RAM (frequency)and CPU (cores/threads) differences.
    1. Desktop PC : I7-5820K CPU(http://ark.intel.com/products/82932/…up-to-3_60-GHz) , Asus X99-A MB , 4×16 GB DDRM4 2133 with 1 TB HDD
    This has 2015 components.
    2.Server : [SIZE=16px]HP ProLiant DL160 G8 , that has : 2 x [/SIZE]E5-2640 http://ark.intel.com/products/64591/…-GTs-Intel-QPI , 64 GB DDR3 1333 with 1 TB HDD
    This has 2012 components

    Basically the important question is : What to pick between 1 x i7 5820k CPU and DDR4 2133 vs 2 x E5-2640 and DDR3 1333 for the instalation of ESXI as host.
    And also how important are the cores for an virtualization sistem like ESXI.
    Thank you very much for your time ,
