Gigabit for now, I’ve been looking at 10G, but it is still a bit too expensive for a decent switch. Due to the age of my raid card (lsi 8888elp) and the phenom II powering my server, I seriously doubt I’d actually gain much going to 10Gbe.

Not sure if there's any practical hardware for it out there yet but 2.5Gb and 5Gb ethernet have been proposed as upcoming stop gap steps in the consumer world since full 10Gbe is still kinda reliant on optronics for reasonable distances which is still fairly expensive tech.

reading into it a little more from what i can see the Pentium and celeron only work with the 300 series chipset and there seems to be little range of these.

so my question is now how over the top is it going to be to spend a little extra money and buy a i3 CPU and Z390 board instead

i would be looking at the

Intel i3 8100 CPU and the Asrock Intel Z390M itx board
