Help with choosing cpu

Recommended Posts


I’m out of the components game since long so i have no idea what are good parts. I want to build a server for plex as well as general storage and all related services to run. Should handle a couple of local 4k streams as well as a couple of remote streams at the same time. Will try to make sure all clients use direct play but might be good to be able to handle some transcoding as well.

Budget around 1000 US. Any ideas what to go with or where to look for good build ideas? My priority currently is to not overshoot on the CPU but on the other hand not to go too light.
