I want to build a Plex media server for under $1,000. This is just for ripping and streaming movies. I've already got the software (Plex running on Win10, plus Makemkv and assorted apps) and peripherals (mouse, keyboard, monitor) covered. I just need the box, which needs to have: - ATX case with 4-5 HDD bays with power supply and fan - ATX motherboard with integrated AV capable of 4k blu ray - Intel i3 or i5 CPU (will i3 be sufficient?) - Sufficient RAM - SSD suitable for Win10, Plex, etc. - 12TB media storage spread over 2-3 HDDs - Ultra HD Blu Ray drive - Network card (unless suitably integrated in mboard?) - Anything else?
I built an HTPC about 10 years ago and it still works running Win7, but I don't think it supports Ultra HD Blu Ray and I think I'd like to just start from scratch. Thanks!!
