Would this work solely as a console streaming pc using an external capture card? Not sure if 32gb ram is overkill and if the processor is powerful enough.

If all you are doing is streaming this will be very good, you can prob even pull off some editing off of these in spare time.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/304547817541 i5-6600T 128GB SSD / 8GB for $188. For a 5+ years old machine, probably better to not splurge a lot.

Cool Part about this chasis - you can put a full i7-6700HQ in it. These are crazy powerful little desktops. I keep one in my cluster to spin up just for high demand processes.

I don't think this is a great price. I got a similar Lenovo, but with an 8th gen 6-core processor for about this price a couple of weeks ago. It was a refurb on ebay.

Also, who needs 32GB of ram with a quad core processor?

I'm curious what type of cluster and workloads you're running. I started playing around with Proxmox after I got a couple of the $88 Acer Celeron. Running pfsense, portainer, Adguard and it's been rock solid

I would recommend the Acer Aspire deal over this as it is only $200 , comes with 2 year warranty as well and a 11th gen i3 so supports Windows 11

I have a similar sized HP to this Dell and an Intel NUC in my VMware ESXi cluster. These are great little form factor machines for quiet operation and good power and space saving functionality for home labs. Mine run VMs such as Splunk, Plex, Ansible, Nessus, Windows 10 workstation VM, Tdarr for media transcoding, etc. These are the CPU compute servers for my cluster and I have a Synology NAS that handles the shared storage for these ESXi hosts. Like previous poster, I would consider getting one of these to add CPU capacity for VMs that need CPU capacity. For home labs, the ram is usually the limiting factor for clusters, as it is easy to run out with many VMs, but home labs don't see much CPU needs vs. real business clusters since they are sitting around doing nothing most of the time unless they are being actively used in a lab experiment.

That is kind of bare bones and wouldn't really work for streaming console gameplay.

Agree with others that this is way overpriced. 6700T Passmark is roughly 7200 and has the older HD520 graphics which doesn't support QuickSync for Plex transcoding and doesn't natively support Windows 11.

I have two Optiplex 3060's running in my home lab with Proxmox as the Hypervisor, one with an 8500T (6C/6T) and one with an 8100T (4C/4T). For most server related workloads, physical cores mean more than hyperthreaded ones.

If you need basic needs, you can pick up an 8100T version of the Optiplex / Prodesk / Lenovo for around $120-150. If you want the 6 cores, then you're looking at $160-200. Throw in 32GB of RAM for another $60 or so and you're well ahead of what is posted here.

If you don't care about Plex or Windows 11 and just want a basic thing to play around with, you can get one with an i5 4570T for around $60-75 or an i5 6500T for around $90-100.

What would you recommend for a MFF PC for streaming game console games on Twitch, using my existing external capture card.
