I am currently running 8 bots on my laptop and the fans are at full capacity and my CPU is burning hot.
I'm thinking of expanding my bot farm. That's why I want to buy a dedicated pc where I can run at least 45+ bots comfortably.
But I have some doubts about the processor that I should buy. I would like your help to decide.
I have a friend who can sell me an HP DL380 G9 server with DUAL Intel Xeon E5-2680 V4 + 256GB RAM in exchange for a Macbook -which I don't use- and $600. I wonder if this setup is enough for the purposes I need.
Or should I build a gaming pc with the latest generation i7/i9 processor instead. I've seen on benchmark sites that this has better performance on the single-core, and from what I understand this is the most important thing for Runescape.
So, should I buy a processor that has better single-core performance or a processor with many cores?
By the way, my current laptop has an i7 7700HQ processor and 24GB RAM. And each bot uses about 12% of the CPU and 300 MB (2.5%) of RAM.
I await for your advice.
