    Recommended budget CPU for ESXi home lab?

    itmv2 Novice

      I want to set up an ESXi home lab to run a couple of Windows and/or Ubuntu VMs. Budget is up to £200 for the CPU. Can anyone recommend a decent CPU within that budget which will work well with ESXi? Would a Ryzen 2700X be a good choice, or would something with on board GPU be a better choice?
