I am building a budget PC/Server to host a minecraft server on linux and probably of only around 3 players normally and 5 or 6 max. While researching I read that the minecraft server only uses one core of the processor and that it won't benefit much from Quad cores. Which would be better to get considering I'm on a budget, they are both dual core processors but would the i3 be faster than the g30 or would a g30 fine?
Processor: don't know yet
Mobo: ASrock H77M
Memory: G. skill 8gb DDR3 1 stick
PSU: Corsair 430w
Optical drive: ASUS 24x DVD burner
Case: NZXT Source 210
Hard drive: WD Blue 500GB SATA 3 16MB cache
