    Building a Test ESXi Box

    peter79 Enthusiast

      Guys,

       

      I'm putting together a home ESXi 5 test box.  My plan is to build a tower/mini tower with 8 GB of RAM ( might push it out to 16 or 32) and a 1TB SATA disk.  I will only have a signle socket motherboard.  I'm looking at a dual core i5 or a pricier quad core i7.

       

      Considering this will only be used to host a few VM's (possilbly only 1 or 2 to start) and will purely be used in a home lab, I'm wondering will a dual core CPU be enough?
