Thinking about taking the jump


Recommended Posts

I'm currently running my server on my daily driver (7700k, 1080ti, 32GB 3200 DDR4) but am wanting the option to increase my storage space. I guess my concern is with this being my first actual server, besides the obvious rack, what else would I need to make sure this transition is smooth? Primarily running 1080p streams, 7 users, and I'm worried about how playback would be with this particular rack.


Any advice is greatly appreciated

You don't necessarily need server hardware to increase your storage. When you say 7 users running 1080p streams what exactly do you mean? Transcoding in Plex?


Those Xeon E5-2620's are getting on a bit now. Sandybridge era, they can cut it if you need the cores for low power processing but if you need some raw power they will leave you wanting.
