Core i3 3220 vs Pentium G2120 Tags: CPUs Core Minecraft Servers Product Last response: December 29, 2012 7:44 PM in CPUs Share Altiris December 29, 2012 7:04:24 PM I am building a budget Linux Server to host Minecraft. The minecraft server uses only 1 core so which which would be better for the price, the G2120 or the i3 3220? My upload speed is 24mbps, download is 34 Mbps, ping is 10-15. Another thing, is a Western Digital 500GB 7200rpm SATA 3 fast enough to host the server?
