So looking to build a plex server cheap as possible (I am on oz bargain)
Haven't built a desktop in 15 years.
Do have some old MATX cases floating around so maybe can reuse the case and power supply (was running a old Q6600 quad core)
I will be doing hardware transcoding limited to 1080p
From what i can tell any of the latest intel's quite capable of doing it via quick sync on the igpu
Need some suggestions on build components
CPU (possibly cheapest current model Celeron)
cheap mother board to suit
8gb of ram (more if i really need it)
I already have a few SSD and hard drives floating around so i am good with that
Machine will only be used as a plex server, so i am not worried about graphics cards or anything else..
already have a qnap 4 bay nas - unfortunately it has an arm cpu
Mainly want the transcoding for remote sharing
Any suggestions would be appreciated
