First time unRAID builder. This is for a home use NAS designed for a couple of simultaneous Plex transcodes, plus storage duty in an occasional photo/video editing environment. Some of the choices are influence by what I've been able to find used online.

CPU: Intel Xeon E5-1620 V4 CPU QS
MB:    X10SRL-F
RAM: Samsung DDR4 16G ECC 2400 RDIMM (1 stick)
HBA: Dell H310
PS:    Corsair AX650
Boot: Kingston DataTraveler 8GB
10gbe:  Chelsio T520-CR (x2, one each on NAS and workstation, direct connection)
HDs: WD Red 3TB x 3, 4TB x 2 (what I have on hand, enough to start with)

Before I order the parts, have I missed anything? Do I need also need a cheap video card to install unRAID? Thanks!

Many of them are just fine... but there are enough issues with them that you should know what you are getting into.  Also, for a 4 core Hyper-threaded CPU @ ~10,000 Passmarks, you have a number of options, including both E5 and E3.
