I have this friend who makes codes and stuff. not sure if hes a developer but yea he uses visual studio and vmware he says.
He ask me for help to build a gaming/coding pc for a budget of 50k php which is 1000USD excluding peripheral and monitor so just the rig.
In my mind was like, you use a computer to make living but you dont have enough knowledge at pc parts? (Im just judging my friend here.)
So I did told him the basics he needs to know like amd cpu should go into amd mobo bla bla.
Then we almost had the planning finish but then I realize that he can go cheaper on the cpu coz the plan is r5 2600x while there is a r3 1300x that is like half the price but still can give him the performance he needs in terms of gaming. So I ask him does he needs more threads? he cant answer that. and I cant answer either.
So question is does visual studio and vmware needs more threads on cpu?
