Hello lovely members of LTT Forum. I have built many gaming PCs for myself and friends over the years. I want to build a Plex Server using older/used server grade hardware. As I have zero experience in this area figured I'd reach out to you for assistance in planning this build
1) I am located in the USA, while this is going to be used parts I am sure ebay will be my #1 shopping website for this build
2) My budget is right around $1,000 USD. This should give me enough room for multiple users hitting the server as well as the necessary storage for a movie buff's collection with room to grow.
3) Thinking of running the entire Plex off of Linux to save cost and learn more about Linux. I am not opposed to running Windows 7 or 10 if people think that supports Plex and various add-ons better
4) No monitors hoping to run this essentially headless after initial set up
Let me know if I forgot to include any additional information.
