4770k enough for 24/7 server/gaming pc?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The pc would be for mass file storage, gaming, and a plex media server transcoding media to different devices. The build I've come up with is £450 cheaper than building a gaming pc and server separately.

Gaming/Server or Gaming & Server?

In my experience, I find it much better to have a separate PC for a server. Doesn't slow down the rig you are actually using. Especially for games, I can say running a server while running the game on one PC can be quite bad, example minecraft.

As for those rigs, your missing GPU(s) from either situation.

Also, a server really doesn't need to be too powerful. You could buy some cheap used parts and things will work just fine. My bro's server uses his old E8400, and I've used my old Q9400 as my own server just fine.

Ah crap, I guess it can't be avoided lol.

They are added as custom parts at the bottom of the list, R9 290.

I was going to go with old hardware, but after reading up on hardware requirements for PMS multiple 1080p/720p transcoding, the i5 3570s fitted the bill.
