If those 5-6 streams will all need to be transcoded, no that CPU is not enough. That CPU could maybe handle 3-4 simultaneous transcodes at a time at best.Originally Posted by Valkyyrie
As the title says, I'm looking to build a Plex host + web server host (for my startup business); would these specs be enough for a moderate/low traffic initially web server and a 5/6 simultaneous 1080p plex streamer?
CPU: i5 2500k (from my old build - lying around)
CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Gemini II M4 low profile
Ram: 16gb G.Skill Snipers (from my old build - lying around)
PSU: EVGA 80+ 500w PSU
Case: Silverstone mATX htpc case
Storage: 128gb Samsung SSD (OS, installations)
5x seagate baracuda 7200rpm 3TB (RAID 0/5 - i havent really decided yet)
PCIE SATA controller: 4x port PCIE SATA adaptor
PCIE LAN controller: Intel Dual Port Gigabit NIC
OS: still a toss up between windows server and a linux distro...
Anyway, been a while since i have used this forum but any input would be greatly appreciated! especially feedback
Edit: forgot to mention I would be connecting a 3TB NAS to the motherboards onboard LAN (to save moving 3tb of data)
