Home server build


Recommended Posts



So the thing is i have had or I still have Dell poweredge r710 server, but i will sell it in a near future, so I need to build a new one.

The budget is around 600$ (+- 100$), I'll use this server for NAS and media server (plex and the arrs). It will run a couple of VM (win, couple of linux instances). I would like it to be upgradable in the future and somewhat decent in power usage.

I don't care about form factor or noise as I have a special server room (basement). 

I also have HDD's (sata and SAS) i can use and two m.2 sticks. So the two of HDD are SAS disks and if I could, i would like to use them.

It has to be good enough to stream to 4 users and I do run quite a lot of apps on it and a couple of databases.
