Nearly 10 year old machine still does everything I could ever want and more. Second processor has some heat issues, but unless I'm slamming the CPUs 100% it's fine.

Why are you not using Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB, anon? It's literally perfect.

Why use Linux at all? If you're on x86 your PC is a botnet anyhow thanks to board management controllers like the Intel Management Engine or the AMD Platform Security Processor. Open source software is worthless if you are on propitiatory firmware. Until RISC-V saves us, there is literally no reason not to use the best OS on the platform, if you are stuck with x86.

CPU

>R5 2600/X - Good gaming & multithreaded work use CPUs
>Wait for 9700k - Almost surely best for 1080p gaming

>Threadripper/Used Xeon - HEDT

RAM

>32GB - If you have to ask, you don't need this
>CPUs benefit from fast RAM; 2933MHz+ is ideal

Graphics cards

Kindess and no hostility edition.

--> Quick Questions Quick Replies <--
>Why would I want a NAS/Homeserver?
If you ask why then you don't need it.

>I want a NAS/HTPC/Plex what should I get?
RPi3 or Odroid XU4/HC1. Odroid upper models has USB 3 and USB bus separated from the Ethernet one.

>B-But muh ARM
Then check the onboard x86 like J4105B-ITX, J4205B-ITX or J4205-ITX. All of them have SATA and USB 3.

>What's the best [software] for doing [ask]?
Specify you question and elaborate. If you want help put something from your side.

>Which disk is better for my homeserver?
Seems like Green WD are not sold nowadays. So WD Reds are okay for the price if you want "NAS Drvies". Otherwise HGST and Toshiba are your friends.
